Views sought on lap dancing clubs in Hartlepool

People in Hartlepool have been asked for their views on the regulation of adult venues such as lap dancing clubs.

The city council will use the information to help draw-up a new licensing policy later this year.

Issues being put forward include pub trading hours and whether restrictions are needed on the number of new premises allowed to open.
