Cumulative impact policy
North Lincolnshire Council, acting as the licensing authority, has a duty to comply with its obligations under section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of Crime and Disorder.
Sex establishment licensing policy
Recent changes brought about by the Police and Crime Act 2009 now provide additional regulatory powers to Local Authorities in respect of Sex Establishments.
Previous legislation permitted the regulation of sex shops and sex cinemas but made no provision for the regulation of adult entertainment venues providing entertainment that includes lap dancing, pole dancing, strip tease or other similar activities.
The change in the law means that such adult entertainment venues are now included within the classification of a 'Sex Establishment'.
