Controversial plans to introduce lap dancing at a night club in Burnham-On-Sea will be debated again in September.
Burnham-On-Sea.com learns Shakers night club, pictured, has just submitted an appeal to Sedgemoor’s licensing panel following a decision in May to turn down its application to introduce lap dancing at the premises.
A Sedgemoor spokeswoman confirmed: “We have received an appeal from the owners of Shakers that will be considered by the licensing panel next month.”
The club has requested a variation to its licence in order to open until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays, and introduce occasional lap dancing.
The licensing panel had rejected the bid after reviewing the comments of local police, residents and councillors in May who were concerned about the impact that the longer opening hours would have on the community around the building.
Town councillors had also raised questions about the controversial plan at their planning meeting in April – and said they were concerned about noise and nuisance problems in the area.
Under the proposal, clubbers at Shakers would be able to leave the building to have a smoke and then get back into the club.
