Sex club snub in holy city

FI­NAL SCORE IS IN CIN­E­MAS AND AVAIL­ABLE ON SKY PRE­MIERE NOW

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

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.
