Nottingham City Council has introduced SEV powers and consulted over policy, suggesting that it might wish to introduce a nil limit for SEVs and sex shops in the city (where there is currently one club and one sex shop).
The results have been published: http://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=20303
It’s worth noting the following: ‘Shortly before the closing of the survey, the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner spoke to the Evening Post about her views on this consultation. This resulted in a front page article: “No Sex in the City” appearing on February 14th, which generated a number of comments on the article itself. It also encouraged a large number of people to respond to the survey. There were a total of 1,395 responses to the survey: over 1,000 replies were received after this article appeared in the press’.
Another shows there is some concern about imposing a nil limit, with a minority supporting the City’s proposal:
How the City responds remains to be seen.
