Accrington lap-dancing club given go-ahead

ACCRINGTON’S first lap-dancing club is to open after plans were given the green light.

The application to open the proposed Eye Candy lap dancing club on Blackburn Road was approved by planners who have granted applicants a sexual entertainment venue (SEV) licence.

Planning officers approved the bid under delegated powers and say that no objections from the general public had been received following the application’s submission.

Lancashire Constabulary are also said to have inspected the premises and raised no objections.

Hyndburn’s planning department say the applicant met all the requirements of their SEV policy and that the proposed club rules are acceptable.

The venue has not yet applied for a premises licence for the sale of alcohol.

I agree.. Society around us is constantly promoting sexualisation from such an early age now, which is sending crime and sexual assaults and attacks almost a part of daily practice. with the lappy club will bring more alcohol and more drugs for the un-civilised.. Well done a town full of pound shops and now a lap-dancing bar.. wot next they be giving us a brothel!!

I have never been to Accy but I certainly will now.

By the way, for those concerned I would say these clubs are not at all rowdy.

Consenting adults watching a few half-naked women writhing about in a private club is a world apart from paedophiles plying eleven-year old girls with alcohol and grooming them.

If they were treated that badly, most of them wouldn't do it.

So Sabden turn down a detached five bedroom house, yet accy allow a perverted club without objection. Maybe the parish council in Sabden should get an application to turn the white hart into a adult bar and massage parlour then they really have something to object to
