Sex establishment licence consultation in Carlisle

A Cumbria council is asking for views on how it should regulate and licence lap dancing and pole dancing clubs.

Carlisle City Council is holding a public consultation on its new Sex Establishment Licence policy.

Its proposals include making venues renew their licences on a yearly basis.

The council wants to considers the views of local people, councillors and police, who have until 15 April to comment on the new policy.

Under new government legislation a sex venue, including sex shops and cinemas, can be considered unsuitable for an area because of nearby schools or church.
