Leeds to cut striptease club numbers

As previously reported, Leeds have consulted on numbers of SEVs, and though the results could be interpreted in a number of contradictory ways, have decided on lowering the number of clubs which can be licensed in the city centre (noting clubs are not permissible elsewhere anyway). The new policy suggest 4 clubs are permissible, suggesting that the existing 7 clubs could be reduced to 4 in due course in line with this policy, with certain localities now identified as inappropriate. This has been widely reported. See:
