Dominatrix in bid to keep sex club open
ADOMINATRIX has asked Stockport Council for planning permission to allow her sex fetish club to remain open.
Lorraine White has submitted an application asking for a change of use for her unit on the Vauxhall Industrial Estate, Reddish, from a warehouse to a place of ‘photography and mild fetish play’.
She was previously using the unit without planning permission but following a complaint has submitted a retrospective application.
If the application is approved Miss White will be allowed to open Tuesday to Saturday from 11pm to 7am each day. But it states she is intending to be closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Neighbours, who have long known about the club, say they do not object to it as long as Miss White remains discreet.
The fetish club was discovered when the fire service was called to an incident at the industrial estate and were unable to get inside Miss White’s premises. She was fined £5,000 with £3,000 costs at Stockport Magistrates Court earlier this year.
Jason Morris, 44, of Greg Street, said: “I don’t care as long as everyone is consenting. I wouldn’t have known it was there (but for press coverage), as long as it stays that way I’m not bothered.”
Jacqui Wood, from Arc arts group, said: “If it’s legal and the landlord is OK with it then that’s their business.”
A complaint following the case prompted a council investigation, which decided the club needed planning permission.
A council spokesman said: “Should the application be refused then the matter will be reviewed again and the council will decide on appropriate course of action.” SEASHELL Trust students signed up to a national campaign calling for equality in education for young people with a disability.
The profoundly disabled students took part in a sign song event at The Trafford Centre in support of The Association of National Specialist Colleges’ Right Not A Fight campaign.
Mariyam Vohra, 20, Julia Smith, 19, and Luke Morrow, 19, performed songs using signing rather than singing, along with students from Bridge College in Manchester.
Tricia Ramjutun, Seashell Trust’s learner voice co-ordinator, said: “The students enjoyed the visual environment of the Trafford Centre and the interaction with other students.”
