No lap-dancing in Peckham

Last week, the club owner withdrew his application for a 24 hour licence that included strip-tease and table-dancing. This is a tremendous result for us all. Your local councillors are in no doubt that this application was withdrawn because of the strength of local opposition. Thank you very much for being part of this important campaign. We could not achieved this without such a strong, united community campaign. We totally disproved all those who said that there is nothing that councillors and communities can do to stop strip and lap-dancing clubs opening. Thank you very much. We will however need to be vigilant of future attempts to open similar clubs. We also need residents to contribute to the Council\'s review of Licensing Policy (see web-link on the right for more details) This consultation is open until 30th September. We hope that you will write in with your views. Your local councillors will be campaigning for a tighter licensing policy than Southwark now has. We are especially opposed to adult entertainment being permitted near schools, community and recreational facilities, places of worship and residential areas. We are also seeking a policy where residents are given more information about licensing proposals. Again, our most sincere thanks for everything you did to help, ----------------------------------------- WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, wish to object to the application for a licence to operate a 24 hour table dancing (lap dancing) club at Blues Night Club, 43 Peckham High Street, London SE15 5EB (ref. 9892). AS RESIDENTS OF PECKHAM AND CAMBERWELL who live within walking distance of Peckham High Street, who shop at local shops on Peckham High Street and Rye Lane, and many of whom have children who go to local schools and visit local facilities and shops, we object on the following grounds: 1. PROTECTION OF CHILDREN: The club is only metres away from two schools, the Peckham Pulse Leisure Centre, Peckham
