As widely reported, Swansea has adopted what is effectively a nil limit. From the approved policy:
3.5 The Council has determined that the “relevant localities” for the purposes of determining applications are “the City Centre area” and “outside the City Centre”, as defined on the map in Appendix A. At the boundary of the city area, all premises that front onto the street at the boundary will be included in the “city centre area.”
3.6 The Council has considered the character of its relevant localities and has determined the following as appropriate numbers of sex establishments:
i) The appropriate number of sex establishments outside the City Centre area will be nil unless varied by the Council.
ii) The appropriate number of sexual entertainment venues in the City Centre area will be nil unless varied by the Council
The change to policy followed public consultation: there were 10 responses, including mine, which resulted in summaries of the ESRC research being provided in cabinet papers.
