Leeds Lap dancing club gets planning permission

Widely reported in Leeds that Black Diamond club (now Tantric Blue) will double in size: having obtained an SEV licence it was noted that it had never obtained planning permission, so this was sought and obtained. The recommendation of the local authority was as follows:

“The proposed use is compatible with the Entertainment Quarter designation. Evidence suggests that the use would be likely to have less of a direct impact on the amenities of the locality than the use of the building primarily as a drinking establishment. ”

Which is interestingly juxtaposed to some of the principles in the new licensing policy for SEVs, which treats SEVs differently than pubs, and less suited to particular city centre locales.

The planning recommendation can be read here:

Application 1301428FU – Change of Use of building to form lap dancing club – 68-72 New Briggate LS

  1. Wondering how the expansion of one club is going to work with the supposed loss of 3 SEVs. Leeds gets stranger by the day.
