Dom­i­na­trix in bid to keep sex club open

Stockport Times West - - NEWS - ALEX SCAPENS

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.”
