Scarborough Council considers lap dance club application

An application to open a lap dancing club in Scarborough is being considered by the council.

If approved, it will be the only licensed sex establishment in the North Yorkshire holiday resort.

The council has received almost 100 objections, including a petition claiming the club would lead to "an increase in anti-social incidents".

The council said North Yorkshire Police had raised no objections to the granting of a licence.

The proposed club would be located above an existing bar in the town centre and operate between 21:00 and 03:30.

A previous lap dancing club closed in 2008 and was converted into a bar.

The decision on granting a licence will be made at a meeting next week.
