Update: Deeper Blues...

Judge rules that thinly veiled morality grounds are sufficient for Leeds Council to close table dancing clubs

Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case
The two clubs (Wildcats and Deep Blue) which appealed against Leeds City Council's decision not to renew their licence have failed to have this decision overturned at Judicial Review.

The decision confirms that the discretion available to local authorities to refuse renewal or initial license consent is very wide, and that restrictive policies can still be justified so long as there is a clear justification given.

The SEV Licensing Blog tellingly asks:

Which takes us back to the crux of the matter: who defines what is in the general public interest? Are local authorities consulting adequately to ensure different publics have their views felt? Do we trust Licensing Committees to balance the interests of the general public with the rights of those who want to run a legitimate business?

These questions are rhetorical, but need to be asked repeatedly given it is now clear that SEV legislation gives total power to local authorities to ban lap dance clubs in their locality so long as they justify that ban with reference to the public interest.

Meanwhile Wildcats is refusing to admit defeat and has launched a fresh challenge in the courts. Owner Paul Gourlay said:

We are disappointed to hear that we have lost our judicial review of Leeds City Council's decision to remove our license. We challenged the decision based on the council's new policy, that was taken despite the club having no complaints, disturbance issues or any kind of problem in the 12 months from the licence being granted in 2012.

The club's new challenge will focus on the way the council drew up its policy on lapdancing clubs which banned them from prominent areas and limited the total number in the city to four. Gourlay said the move had been:

Driven on moral grounds by a select few and this is firmly against the government's legislation on this matter. It is our view that the vast majority of people couldn't care what we do. We are a law abiding business, employing people and paying taxes, I continue to be at a loss to understand the council's behaviour. We will fight on and hope that we can win our case and make the council see sense.

 

 

Update: Wildcat Action...

Wildcats table dancing club appeals to Eric Pickles to intervene to stop Leeds Council arbitrarily shutting down the club

Eric Pickles is being asked to intervene over Leeds City Council's efforts to shut down a city centre lapdancing club.

The owner of Wildcats on The Headrow has asked Local Government Secretary to investigate why Leeds City Council is spending money on legal action to close it at a time when the authority is having to make major cuts and put up council tax bills.

In a letter to Mr Pickles, Wildcats owner Paul Gourlay says:

The council closed 13 libraries to save ?600,000 a year and now faces legal bills that are likely to exceed that sum for an issue that most taxpayers don't care about. I think this issue deserves an external inquiry on behalf of the taxpayer.

Wildcats was one of three lapdancing clubs to arbitrarily be stripped of its licence last year after the council drew up moralist rules to get table dancing clubs shut down.

Wildcats has been allowed to stay open until both sides put their case at a Judicial Review next month.

Two table dancing clubs arbitrarily selected for closure because moralists didn't like them, have been allowed to say open whilst they seek a Judicial Review of the ban.

Wildcats and Deep Blue had faced short notice closure by the council, but have won a stay from judges at Leeds Combined Court and from the High Court. The judges ruled that they can stay open while they seek a judicial review.

A third club, Red Leopard, which also faces closure, is yet to hear if it can remain open.

Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case
Half of Leeds' six strip venues had applications to renew their sexual entertainment venue (SEV) licences rejected by the city council.

Deep Blue, Red Leopard and Wildcats were ordered to shut by next Friday.

Liberte and Purple Door, both located on York Place, had their licences approved. The application for Silks, on Sovereign Place, was approved for a period expiring next June.

The decision by the licensing sub-committee was taken after the council introduced a new policy on SEVs stating there should be a maximum of four SEVs in Leeds.

The council claimed the decision was taken to refuse three licences due to the number of buildings with sensitive uses nearby to the location of the premises .

Comment: Leeds Council - An Absence of Common Decency

6th December 2013. See  article from  strippingtheillusion.blogspot.com

I find it fascinating that the deliberations of the Licensing Sub Committee have been embargoed by the Council. So in other words we will never know what was said, or how they arrived at the decision to close three businesses that have never violated the terms of their licenses.

The owners of Wildcats and Red Leopard have stated publicly that they will take legal action against the Council. It is my sincerest hope that this materialises because if nothing else, court action will see some light shone on what I see to be a very murky set of decisions.

 

 

Update: 4 out of 6...

Leeds council moralists are set to pick which table dancing clubs are to be closed down


Link Here12th November 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case
Leeds City Council's licensing sub-committee is holding a series of crunch meetings between November 18 and 22 to decide whether the city's six strip venues can keep their licences.

At least two are likely to be refused after a new council policy recommended that Leeds should have no more than four lap dancing clubs. Sue Holden, principal project officer for the licensing department, said:

We can't fetter the discretion of the councillors through the policy. It's not a case of which four will be granted. They could listen to the applications and choose to grant all six. By the same token, they could refuse the lot.

The six clubs -- Deep Blue, Wildcats, Red Leopard, Silks, Purple Door and Liberte -- have to apply to renew their sexual entertainment venue (SEV) licences annually. Each club will be heard individually, but the sub-committee will issue judgements on all six after the last case has been heard. Members must outline special reasons for approving more than four if they decide to disregard the policy.

Lap dance club bosses have vowed to fight licence refusals. Paul Gourlay, who runs Wildcats on The Headrow, said:

We are obviously exceptionally worried about the possibility of the loss of our licence, set against the back drop of no regulatory concern over our business.

We have prepared a compelling case to place before the licensing authority and hope that there will not be the need to take this matter further to the High Court with the time, effort and expense this will cause to all parties. We employ a significant number of local people, contribute to the local economy and have a considerable amount of time to run on our lease.

We will of course need to challenge any negative decision through the legal system which seems unnecessary particularly in the current economic climate.

Legal Considerations

First of all it is noted that an existing licence is considered in law as a protected possession in human rights law:

It has been accepted that a licence is classed as a possession capable of protection under Article 1 of the First Protocol of the European Convention on Human Rights.

This clearly states that a person has a right to peaceful enjoyment of his possessions and the case of Tre Traktorer Aktiebolag v Sweden (1989) 13 EHRR classifies a licence as something capable of protection.

Not something that can councils can take away on a moralist or feminist whim.

Secondly there are European requirements imported into UK law that impose standard conditions on councils when considering licence applications:

The Provision of Services Regulations [S.I. 2009/2999]. Regulation 24(1) imposes three important tests highlighting that any refusal must be:

  • Non discriminatory
  • Necessary
  • Proportionate

Surely this would allow failed applicants to ask a court 'exactly how necessary was it for a council to refuse a license for a 5th venue, when 4 others have been approved by the council?

 

 

Update: Bullies Diminish the Quality of Life in Leeds...

Campaigners make some dubious claims about table dancing


Link Here 11th October 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

Gender extremists have launched a campaign against Leeds table dancing clubs whose licenses are up for renewal.

Six of the city's strip venues have applied to Leeds City Council to renew their sexual entertainment venue (SEV) licences. Silks, Deep Blue, Purple Door, Liberty, Red Leopard and Wildcats are facing a repressive morality policy set to close businesses so as to arbitrarily reduce numbers to four.

Anti-table dancing campaigners of a group called Support Against Rape and Sexual Violence are attempting to rally support behind its objections to the industry. Catriona Palin claimed, without evidence, that there was a link between crime and sex establishments, and that they tended to have a damaging impact on women. She said:

Leeds is a diverse city with a variety of cultures and faiths, representing around 11 per cent of the city. Women from a range of communities are intimidated by the proximity of these clubs.

She spouts without actually giving any clues as to how quality of life deteriorates and claims that table dancing leads to increased reports of rape, probably referring to the much debunked research about clubs in Camden:

Research has shown that wherever lap-dance and strip clubs appear, women's quality of life deteriorates as a result, with increased reports of rape.

Club operators are keeping their counsel and have declined to comment before next month's licence hearings, which are all due to take place within a week.

 

 

Update: The Wrong Impression of Leeds...

Leeds Council refuses licence for an expanded table dancing club citing a morality cap as the main reason


Link Here 20th September 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case
Plans to double the size of a Leeds table dancing club have been rejected.

Illuminati Ventures, the company behind the Black Diamond club on New Briggate in the city centre, had applied for permission to expand the venue from two floors to four. But Leeds City Council's licensing sub-committee turned down the plan.

Gender extremists had previously railroaded through a council policy that only 4 venues should be allowed in Leeds, when in fact there are 7 currently operating.

The licensing committee cited this morality cap as one reason for rejecting the company's expansion plan. Members also spouted the unimaginative bollox that the venue was in a sensitive location and could create the wrong impression of Leeds because it sits at a gateway to the city.

Representatives of Illuminati Ventures told the Yorkshire Evening Post that they were undecided about whether to take the matter further. They added that they had not decided if they would reopen the club under the terms of the existing licence covering two floors.

 

 

Update: Less Impact than a Bar...

Leeds planners recommend approval for extension of table dancing venue


Link Here1st August 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

Illuminati Ventures has applied to Leeds City Council for permission to expand the current Black Diamond club on New Briggate from two floors to four. And now a report to the council's City Plans Panel recommends the venue, which is near The Grand Theatre, should be given permission to double its size.

Gender extremist Sandra McNeill from Support After Rape and Sexual Assault Leeds (SARSVL) whinged:

I am very, very surprised because Leeds City Council has agreed to limit the number of lap dancing clubs to four. The majority of members of the Citizens' Panel said that Briggate was not suitable for lap dancing clubs. It's next to The Grand Theatre and that makes it a sensitive location and not suitable.

Planners noted:

Although Black Diamond/Tantric Blue is located near to family leisure facilities (the Grand Theatre and the Arena), and close to New Briggate, this does not automatically mean that the licence will not be granted.

The proposed use it 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.

No objections have been raised by consultees, including the Police and Environmental Protection and accordingly, on balance, the application is recommended for approval.

Update: Approved

21st August 2013. See  article from  sevlicensing.wordpress.com

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 has now been obtained.

Leeds Council adopts the policy to close down 3 out of 7 table dancing venues

Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

Leeds Council has adopted the policy to close table dancing businesses that have done nothing except offend the morality of councillors.

The number of lap dancing clubs in Leeds will now be set at a maximum of 4 but it is not yet clear how Leeds will select the businesses for closure and how they will work around the illegality of closing businesses without reason.

Existing licences would be reviewed when they come up for renewal later this year, the council said. The new morality rules will come into force from September.

Perhaps Leeds Council need to consider some of the legal points from the previous post.

 

 

Extract: Moralists Prevail...

Leeds Council reports some public support for restricting table dancing venues to 4


Link Here25th June 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

In July 2012 the Leeds Council Licensing Committee formed a disgracefully one sided working group to review the policy to ensure it still met the needs [some] of the 'people of Leeds':

  • Rosie Campbell, Researcher, University of Leeds
  • Pauline Ellis, Equality Unit
  • Rosie Robinson Boardman, OBJECT
  • Arwen Strudwick, Domestic Violence Unit
  • Sara Robertson, Child Friendly Officer
  • Sgt Andrew Pollard, West Yorkshire Police (Child Sex Exploitation)
  • Sgt Martin Mynard, West Yorkshire Police (City Centre NPT)

The working group unsurprisingly opted for new restrictions on table dancing venues, including: a ban on table dancing outside of the city centre; and a cap of 4 premises in the city centre.

In March the Licensing Committee approved the draft policy for public consultation.

The public consultation took place between 18th March and 26th April. The council received 135 responses. Each response was classified as positive, positive but would go further, negative or unclear:

  • 87 (64%) responses were in support of the policy,
  • 43 (32%) were not in support and
  • 5 (4%) provided a response where it was unclear.

It was noted that In support of the policy, 52 (39%) respondents used the same standard letter. This response agreed that there should be no lap dancing clubs outside of the city centre, accepted a limit of 4, provided some sensitive uses, confirmed that advertising should not be sexually explicit, and transport for customers should not be provided.

The working group have now recommended that Leeds Council adopt its miserable policy:

  • That Licensing Committee consider the responses to the public consultation and the recommendation from the Working Group.
  • That Licensing Committee consider the draft policy and refer it to Executive Board for approval, with the policy coming into effect on 1st September 2013.

The report does not comment on how to select the 3 clubs to be closed down and how to address the fact that such closures are illegal under European Licensing law.

 

 

Update: Morality Bullshit...

Leeds council ludicrously claims that the name 'Tantric Blue' could cause 'moral or psychological harm' to children


Link Here8th June 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

A proposed new name for a Leeds table dancing club could inflict moral or psychological harm on children, licensing officials ludicrously claim.

Owners of the Black Diamond club, on New Briggate in the city centre, have applied to Leeds City Council to double the size of the premises, from two floors to four. They also want to rename it Tantric Blue .

But the council's own licensing department has now criticised the application -- because the suggested new name would undermine the requirement to protect children from harm. In a letter of objection, the department spewed:

Whilst 'Tantric' is linked to spiritualism and certain religious practices, for the purpose of a lap dancing venue it takes on another interpretation and associates the premises with sexual practice.

The licensing authority is of the opinion that the name of the premises has the potential to cause moral and/or psychological harm to children as well as offence and embarrassment to parents when visiting the city with children.

The sub-committee is due to make a decision at a meeting on 10th June.

 

 

Updated: Moralists Win...

Nutters convince Leeds Council to try and arbitrarily ban 3 lap dancing clubs


Link Here14th March 2013
Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

A new draft policy recommends that Leeds City Council imposes a limit of four lap dancing clubs,  three fewer than are currently operating. It also suggests banning strip joints from sensitive locations , for example near schools and religious buildings.

The new proposals were welcomed by Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves, who led last year's campaign. She spouted:

I want Leeds to be seen as a welcoming, family-friendly city and I do not feel that the proliferation of lap dancing clubs in prominent locations sends out a positive image of our city to visitors. I hope that the licensing committee uses the cap on the number of venues as a way of doing this.

Bishop of Ripon and Leeds, the Rt Revd John Packer, is backing the new policy. One would think that churches should lay off preaching about sexual morality until they have got their own houses in order, but he spouted anyway:

This seems an appropriate response to the concerns expressed by many that some parts of Leeds city centre could be effectively barred to children and families because of the sheer number of SEVs. It is important that the city of Leeds is seen as a place of welcome and encouragement to all.

The policy was drawn up by a council working group following a survey of more than 1,800 members of the council's Citizens Panel. Asked how many lap dancing clubs was appropriate for the city centre, 59% said four or fewer, of which nearly half said there should be none. The licensing committee is now likely to put the draft policy out for public consultation.

Update: Leeds Council reminded that it is against the law for councils to close down businesses for arbitrary moral reasons

14th March 2013.  See  article from  yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk

Lawyers have warned council chiefs to brace themselves for costly High Court action if they attempt to shut down Leeds lap dancing clubs.

As reported in the YEP a new draft policy proposes to limit the number of strip venues in the city to four -- three fewer than are currently operating. Now committee members heard the authority could well face legal action if it forced any existing businesses to shut.

Council solicitor Richard Des Forges said:

We can't get away from the fact that there's an element of risk. We have taken advice from one of the leading barristers in the area and what the lap dancing clubs could do is take us to the High Court for a judicial review.

What they can argue is fairly limited and, as long as we have dotted the 'i's and crossed the 't's and we know where they will attack us, we should be okay. But there are no guarantees.

Legal Considerations

First of all it noted that an existing licence is considered in law as a protected possession in human rights law:

It has been accepted that a licence is classed as a possession capable of protection under Article 1 of the First Protocol of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Full story: Lap Dancing in Leeds...Nutters and moralists on Len' case

A Leeds MP has demanded an apology from a councillor who does not agree with her extremist views. Rachel Reeves has branded Leeds City Council councillor Joe Marjoram's comments about lap dancing proposals on the social networking site as outrageous .

Councillor Marjoram had been responding to Leeds City Council's recommendation to ban several of the city's lap dancing clubs. The Conservative councillor tweeted that he would not object if someone planned to open up a lap dancing club in his ward but added it would not make money outside the city centre . He then made light in another tweet: naked dancing girls for neighbours sounds great.

Marjoram told the YEP that he stood by his comments and that they were a joke:

It was intended as a joke and anyone who read that needs to go away and get a sense of humour.

There's nothing wrong with the lap dancing industry. It's not linked to the sex trade or forced labour.

If people object to it as an industry then don't take it out on me. Making a complaint about a tweet will get nothing done and it shows how pedantic they are.

If I have done something illegal, unlawful or offensive they can report me to the police if not they can get lost.

Reeves retorted:

Frankly I'm pretty shocked that a Leeds councillor has made these outrageous comments. I call on Councillor Marjoram to withdraw his comments and apologise for them.

Nutters who launched a failed bid to ban lap dancing in Leeds are refusing to take defeat lying down.

MPs, councillors and religious leaders had joined forces to call on Leeds City Council to to restrict the number of venues in the city or to ban them outright. But after being briefed about the legality of imposing restrictions on grounds of morality, the authority granted all seven clubs new licences last month.

The nutters have now launched an online petition calling on the council to reconsider.

Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves, reiterated her morality concerns:

I don't believe that these sexual entertainment venues should be located on our busiest city centre streets, especially adjacent to civic and religious buildings.

Residents, visitors and children should be able to journey through the city centre without encountering the sex industry and at the moment that is just not possible.

I want Leeds to be seen as a welcoming, family friendly city and I do not feel that the proliferation of these clubs in such prominent locations sends out a positive image of our city to visitors.

Moortown councillor Rebecca Charlwood, who led the initial nutter campaign, added:

It's particularly disappointing that Leeds City Council did not take action to reduce the number of these clubs as many other cities across the country have done.

We have the power to say where they should be and how many of these clubs is appropriate, if you take pride in your city it's a common sense policy.

Leeds Council received seven applications for sexual entertainment venue licences and following a week of hearings the licensing sub-committee decided to grant all of them subject to some conditions.

Lap dancing clubs given licences were Liberte, Deep Blue, Purple Door, Red Leopard, Wildcats, Black Diamond, and Silks in the Dark.

Hours of opening will be set at 10pm to 4am between Monday and Thursday and 10pm until 5am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Objectors including councillors, MPs and religious leaders called on the committee to refuse all the applications and set a nil limit for the future, or significantly reduce the number allowed to operate in the city.

But Councillor Suzi Armitage, sub-committee chairman, told the Yorkshire Evening Post that in hearing all the applications members had sought to be fair to the clubs while taking the objectors' views into account.out.

Dancers from Leeds lap dancing club Wildcats, gathered to protest against license changes that jeopardises their jobs.

The dancers along with operations director of Wildcats, Hamed Nejad, were making a stand against the proposed licensing restrictions that could see seven clubs in the city closing down. Nejad said:

We are all deeply concerned about the potential outcomes of the license review. The livelihoods of hundreds of people are at risk and it seems in the hands of some lobby groups with extreme views.

There are thousands of people, men and women, who enjoy visiting clubs across Leeds every week and it would be great if they made their voices heard in this debate.

Update: Len Laps it Up...

Leeds lap dancing bar gets council go-ahead

A former champagne bar in Leeds city centre is to re-open as a strip club despite objections.

Len's Bar on York Place closed last year and now The Bradbury Executive Trust, the premises licence holder, intends to use the building for a new venture to be called Baby Platinum, a striptease, pole dancing and lap dancing venue.

The scheme cleared a major hurdle when the council's licensing sub-committee agreed the licence could be altered to run from 10am until 6am every day.

Residents living in flats above the former Len's Bar objected to the application fearing it would lead to increased disturbance.

In a letter of objection, residents Howard Davison and Claire Leather said a lap dancing club was inappropriate in a residential building.

A letter of objection from Zolv.com Ltd, a business based in York Place said: A licenced premise with all night opening and these activities would have a negative effect on the immediate area and the reputation of the small businesses well established here.

In the Lap of Leeds Object...

Nutters and moralists insist on the absolute right to deny men their sexual pleasure

A former champagne bar is set to make a comeback on to the Leeds party scene as a strip club.

Len's Bar, on York Place, closed last year but the building's owners have applied to re-open as a strip tease, pole dancing and lap dancing venue.

Leeds City Council said the owners had applied for a variation to its original entertainment licence.

The move has caused predictable outrage among nutters and moralists, including members of the Leeds branch of Object. Rosie Robinson Boardman said: " We have found that many people in Leeds believe the nine lap dancing clubs we have in our city is more than enough.

The rights of women in Leeds to access local services are being failed by the Licensing Authority's choice to support lap dance and strip tease. Leeds City Council has a duty to support the different needs of men and women in the city.

But by granting licences to clubs offering adult entertainment involving female exploitation, you are privileging the rights of one gender over another, by licensing venues that have proven detrimental effects on the well-being of women and girls.


Councillor Mohammed Iqbal added: These clubs are degrading. These clubs are springing up everywhere and Leeds already has too many of them. Leeds City Council should put a stop to it.
