Sex establishment

In general the Licensing Authority has discretion whether or not to grant a licence for the use of any premises, vehicle, vessel or stall to be used as a class of sex establishment.  A Licence cannot, however, be granted to:

  • a person under 18 
  • a person who has held a licence but has had it revoked within 12 months preceding the date of application
  • a person, other than a body corporate, who is not resident in an European Economic Area (EEA) State or was not so resident throughout the period of six months immediately preceding the date when the application was made
  • a body corporate which is not incorporated in an EEA State
  • a person who has within the last 12 months preceding the date of the application been refused a licence in respect of the same premises.
