A Sheffield grandmother is taking the council to court after they said their should be ‘no limit’ on the number of sexual entertainment venues in the city.
‘Irene Gladdison’, aged 54, has raised nearly £5,000 in order to launch her legal challenge to over turn the policy.
A draft council report published in December 2016 said there would be a a limit of two strip clubs in Sheffield.
Since there are already two clubs of this kind in Sheffield, it would effectively stop any new sexual entertainment venue from opening.
But further consultation the ‘two-club limit’ was replaced with a provision allowing the council to introduce a cap for an unspecified number.
The report said the policy ‘does not specify any limit on sex establishments’.
