Council says 'No' to second lap dancing application

Printer-friendly version

On Tuesday (30 October) Maidstone Council threw out an application for lap dancing to take place at a venue located near a large shopping mall in the Gabriels Hill area.

A similar application for a lap dancing club to open near Maidstone town centre was rejected by the Council last Monday (22 October).

The Christian Legal Centre supported a local resident who voiced the concerns of many others that such a venue was inappropriate in an area surrounded by churches, a large shopping centre and a number of family-friendly restaurants. 


Welcoming the decision, Andrea Williams, CEO of the Christian Legal Centre, said:

"We are delighted that Maidstone Council has reaffirmed its position that no new sex establishments are welcome in the area.

"If  you wish to resist a sex establishment application,  please contact the Christian Legal Centre.  We will support you.  After achieving two victories in just over one week, we are confident that more successes are possible.”
