There is a planning application to open a lap-dancing club at the old Conservative Club building on Albert Road. Albert Road is a shining gem in Portsmouth's crown, independent shops with something for the whole family. Opening a new sexual entertainment venue here is not wanted, not needed, and works against the vibrant community that has established itself here.
The council’s existing licensing policy states that new applications for more lapdancing clubs in the city will be refused unless there is evidence to show how one would benefit the community. If this venue can't be licensed, it shouldn't get planning permission.
Help us to get the application rejected by signing our petition on 38 Degrees: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/reject-planning-permission-for-a-new-lap-dancing-club-in-portsmouth
