Sexual Entertainment Venues

Sexual Entertainment Venue Policy Consultation

Hyndburn Borough Council (the Council) is able to regulate sex establishments through Schedule 3 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 (the 1982 Act), in particular sex shops and sex cinemas.

On 6 April 2010 the Policing and Crime Act 2009 (the 2009 Act) came into force and amended Schedule 3 of the 1982 Act. Sexual Entertainment Venues (SEVs) were added as a category of sex establishments to enable local authorities to regulate those premises which provide lap dancing, pole dancing, table dancing, strip shows, peep shows and live sex shows and other similar entertainment.
 
From 24 January 2011 to 18 April 2011 we are consulting on our Sexual
Entertainment Venues (SEVs) Policy.
 
Your views are important in allowing us to reach a fair and proportionate Policy and we hope that you will be able to consider the draft document and offer any comments that you may have on it. In order to assist respondents we have produced a consultation proforma to enable a reply to be sent to us.

Should you have any comments as regards to this Consultation Policy then please either complete and submit this proforma online or alternatively download it and then send the completed proforma to the address given below:
