Purple Door lap-dancing club license application
The future of one of the best lap-dancing clubs in Hull will be decided by councillors next week.
The Purple Door, in Dock Street, has applied for a license renewal that will allow the club to operate as a sexual entertainment venue.
According to a report prepared for Hull City Council’s licensing committee, councillors are being urged not to object to the club on ‘moral grounds or values’.
In the past, both The Purple Door and fellow lap dancing club The Honey Trap had their licenses renewed and objections from nearby residents were found groundless.
However, this year seems to be a good one for The Purple Door as there is no registered opposition against its plans to continue the councillors’ attitude looks benevolent. Councillor Anita Harrison who is part of the committee claimed that the club had “done everything the council had asked of them” in the past.
“There were quite a lot of objections in previous years, but I think it’s fair to say the club doesn’t cause any trouble,” she said.
“They keep the place tidy and they do everything we ask of them; we can’t really ask for much more than that. Our job is just to police it really and make sure everything is ok and to be fair in this case there has been no trouble”, she added

Plans for a new strip club in Middlesbrough rejected by the council
Middlesbrough Council has rejected a proposal to open a new strip club in the town centre.
An application was made earlier this year to open a new venue called Richmonds, near the train station. If granted a permission, the club would have been Middleborough’s first strip club for six years.
But instead of taking into account the improvement of the nightlife industry and economic situation of the city, the council staff suggested that scantily-clad strippers performing raunchy routines would prove “detrimental” for the town.
The councill’s decision was negative even though there was only one public objection against the plans.
“We felt that it was not right for that area,” said Labour’s Teresa Higgins.
“A lot of students walk in that area and it is a walkway for the train station.”
The Leeds-based applicant Access Leisure Investments Ltd. were in the hope to support the economy of the town by creating up to 40 local jobs, while resurrecting a muck-coated building that is in “terminal decline”.
The applicant wanted to convert the former Slam! bar, in Exchange Place, into a strip club, where customers could enjoy a topless tea time lap-dance.
