It has now been widely reported that there is an application for a new SEV (‘Angels’) on Portland St Manchester, in the building currently occupied by Torore (it’s unclear if they have planning consent for a change of use). The image shows some local residents concerned about the impact on the locality, while the news story also suggests some local councillors have concerns. The city has 6 similar clubs already. The application is out for consultation until the 20th June.
UPDATE: The application was withdrawn in July, with a suggestion that 500 objections were made: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/chinatown-lap-dance-club-scrapped-4868660
