Angels of hope in West Bromwich...

When lap dancing licence renewals at least mean that a club has survived the lockdowns


Link Here22nd April 2021
Members of Sandwell Council's licensing sub committee approved an application to renew the sexual entertainment venue licence for Angels Gentlemen's Club in the High Street for a year.

Committee members heard how there were no objections to the renewal of the licence or reports of any problems with the club since it opened.

Angels has been closed for more than a year due to the coronavirus outbreak and licensee Kulwant Singh had requested the fee for the licence -- which costs more than 3,000 be reduced.

He did not get a very positive answer to the request though.

Glasgow Council decides to introduce licensing for lap dancing clubs and postpones a decision to ban them for 18 months

Full story: Lap Dancing in Glasgow...Glasgow council wages war against lap dancing
A Glasgow City Council committee has voted to make sexual entertainment venues (SEV) in the city subject to a licensing regime.

Rather than ban such clubs immediately, the Licensing and Regulatory Committee said a further 18 month consultation should now begin. This will consider what a licensing regime for the clubs should look like and detail how many licences are appropriate for Glasgow.

While dancers welcomed the decision to regulate SEVs they expressed dismay at a second consultation. Megara, who has helped spearhead a campaign to save Glasgow's clubs and helped dancers unionise with GMB Scotland, said:

The number of licenses was the key thing we needed to know in order to allow dancers to breathe again safely in the knowledge they have a secure job to go to when the pandemic ends.

The new licensing regime is now scheduled to come into effect on September 24, 2022. The three existing Glasgow lap dancing clubs are expected to be granted licences by the city council under a grandfather clause.

Bristol's mayor and police commissioner seek to get lap dancing banned


Link Here10th March 2021
Bristol City Council, Bristol's mayor and the Avon & Somerset police commissioner are all uniting in a proposal to ban lap dancing in Bristol.

Councillors will be asked to approve a new draft policy that would ban lap dancing venues from operating anywhere in Bristol. The proposed ban, which would go out to a 12-week public consultation, appears in an appendix of an item to be considered by the licensing committee on Monday, March 8.

It seems heartless to ban workers in a sector that has been forced to close during the last year due to coronavirus lock downs. Especially as surveys show most Bristolians are happy with them as long as they are away from certain areas, including schools , housing estates, parks, women's refuges and places of worship.

The prominent proponents of the mean minded proposal are Bristol mayor Marvin Rees, Avon & Somerset police and crime commissioner Sue Mountstevens and Bristol West MP Thangam Debbonaire .

If the policy is adopted by the council, both of the existing venues -- sister venues Urban Tiger and Central Chambers -- would be forced to close. At the two clubs' annual licence renewal hearings in 2019, pole-dancers said they were feminists also and had a right to choose how they earned a living.

The draft policy also includes the licensing of sex shops but no there no plans to change the current maximum of two each in both the city centre and Old Market/West Street and zero in other areas.

Update: Bristol Council takes the next step to banning lap dancing

Passions ran high as councillors voted narrowly to send a proposed ban on lap-dancing clubs in Bristol out to public consultation.

Licensing committee members voted 7-6, with one abstention, on Monday (March 8) to ask residents and interest groups what they thought of a new draft policy setting the maximum number of sexual entertainment venues (SEVs) to zero.

But the decision, which could force the closure of the city's two city centre SEVs Urban Tiger and Central Chambers and put hundreds of mostly female jobs at risk, was described as monstrous and pandering to the views of women's rights activists on moral grounds.
