Sex shop gets green light for an­other year

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

A CON­TRO­VER­SIAL sex shop has been given per­mis­sion to con­tinue trad­ing for a sec­ond year.

Pulse & Cock­tails Ltd, in Toll Bar Way, Sawtry, was granted the re­newed li­cence by Hunt­ing­don­shire Dis­trict Coun­cil de­spite per­sis­tent ob­jec­tions from lo­cal res­i­dents.

At a meet­ing of the coun­cil’s li­cens­ing and pro­tec­tion ap­pli­ca­tions sub-group yes­ter­day, it was agreed to ap­prove the ap­pli­ca­tion for a sex shop li­cence for a fur­ther 12 months.

A spokes­woman for the coun­cil said: “We are well aware that there is con­sid­er­able public feel­ing about this es­tab­lish­ment.

“In reach­ing our decision to­day we have had to have at all times re­gard to the rel­e­vant leg­is­la­tion con­cern­ing the li­cens­ing of sex shops.

“A num­ber of peo­ple are very un­happy in re­la­tion to these premises.

“On bal­ance and hav­ing heard all of the ev­i­dence to­day we are con­tent that these premises have been well run for the pre­vi­ous year, no harm to any in­di­vid­ual has been ev­i­denced be­fore us.”

The shop also saw its two new hor­i­zon­tal ad­ver­tis­ing boards out­side the premises ap­proved, but a pro­posed six-me­tre high totem pole ad­vert will not be al­lowed.
