Sex club snub in holy city
FINAL SCORE IS IN CINEMAS AND AVAILABLE ON SKY PREMIERE NOW
A BID to open a kinky SEX CLUB on the outskirts of Britain’s holiest city has hit a snag, after planning officers refused the application.
But the man behind the plans says the X- rated venture is not dead in the water and still believes Lakesview Business Park, in Canterbury, Kent, is the ideal spot for a bondage dungeon.
Despite the refusal – which planning officers blamed partly on a lack of parking – applicant Jack Brabham is adamant he will appeal the decision.
He said: “The refusal is unfair. It should have gone to committee as it had a huge amount of support.
“I’ll definitely be appealing, it shouldn’t have been dealt with by officers.”
But the city council’s head of planning, Simon Thomas, said the decision- making process was done by the book.
He added: “Officers are entitled to refuse applications when they judge that they do not comply with our policies.”
Canterbury has been a place of holiness since 597, when Pope Gregory the Great sent St Augustine to convert local King Æthelberht to Christianity.
St Augustine became the first Archbishop of Canterbury.
