Lowestoft’s licence has been refused due to its proximity to residential properties


Waveney District Council’s licensing sub committee voted unanimously against an application to open Jessy Fantail in the former Bank Stores pub, in Commercial Road, on November 21.

Applicants Hazel Wilson and Stephen Barrett were given the go-ahead to open the Candy Lounge Gentleman’s Club in nearby Station Square in February and said they would surrender that licence if they received approval to open in Bank Stores.

Speaking after the meeting, committee member Sarah Webb said councilor felt the location of the latest venue at the gateway to the town and close to residential properties was inappropriate. There were 26 objections and three petitions. The minutes for this meeting remain unavailable at time of writing, so the full justification for refusal remains unstated.
