Busi­ness dis­trict to fight plans to open strip club

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

BUSI­NESS in Birm­ing­ham’s com­mer­cial dis­trict are to fight plans for an all-night strip club.

A no­tice for a ‘sex­ual en­ter­tain­ment venue’ ap­peared on the win­dow of 61 Ne­whall Street in the last few days.

The build­ing, which was home to the for­mer Cogs night­club, is on the cor­ner of Great Charles Street and Ne­whall Street.

Michelle Mon­aghan, who made the ap­pli­ca­tion on De­cem­ber 18, has pro­posed to name the es­tab­lish­ment La Belle’s. The hours of op­er­a­tion would be 8pm un­til 6am ev­ery day of the week.

The ap­pli­ca­tion will need to be ap­proved by a coun­cil li­cens­ing com­mit­tee, and ob­jec­tions from the pub­lic and sur­round­ing busi­nesses must be taken into ac­count.

The ap­pli­ca­tion has al­ready drawn at­ten­tion of a lo­cal busi­ness group who will op­pose the plans. A Col­more Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict spokesman said: “Col­more Busi­ness Dis­trict is the premier busi­ness area in the city and we do not feel that Ne­whall Street is a suitable lo­ca­tion for a sex­ual en­ter­tain­ment venue and will there­fore be mak­ing an ob­jec­tion to the ap­pli­ca­tion.”
