CHANGES may be made to Daventry district’s Sex Establishment Licensing Policy this week.

A meeting on Thursday looks likely to approve a policy change allowing visitors to lap dancing clubs to put money into strippers’ garters.

At present there are no lap dancing clubs in the district.

The amendment will be discussed by Daventry District Council’s strategy group on Thursday.

It is one of a number of minor changes put forward for the policy, which was adopted by the council last year.

Council officers have recommended that section 7E of the policy is changed so that it is worded as follows: “There shall be no physical contact between the customer and the performer during the performance or after the performance, save for the insertion of a gratuity into a garter or similar garment.

“Outlining this shall be clearly displayed at the entrance of the premises and in each bar area.”

The policy was adopted last year to enable the regulation of sex shops, sex cinemas and sexual entertainment venues such as lap dancing clubs within the Daventry District.
