New laws set to change lap dancing clubs

From April onwards, lap dancing clubs are set to fall under sexual entertainment venues.

As of the beginning of next month, lap dancing clubs will no longer be classed the same as pubs and clubs. This new act which falls under the new rules of the policing and crime act 2009 will stop these clubs from opening near schools or in quiet neighbourhoods.

Owners of such clubs, such as Alex Buchanan who runs Cloud nine based in Lincoln thinks it will greatly affect his licensing fees although the employees themselves cant see the new legislation affecting their jobs.
