A application has been received from the Erotica Belle Ltd for a renewal of a sex shop license for their premises at 2 the Broadway, Andover.
This is currently the only licensed sex shop in the Test Valley Borough, and will go before the licensing committee for determination. This type of shop has to renew its license every year, at a cost of £1460.
As part of the application, the applicants are required to display a public notice at the premises and also in the local newspaper advising that the application has been submitted and inviting written objections. Only objections received within 28 days of the date of the notice may be considered by the council. However, no objections were received from the public or any other group.
This application will be decided on Thursday 20th November 2014 , 5.30pm, at Beech Hurst at the licensing committee. This meeting is open to members of the public, if you wish to attend.
Please let me know your views on this type of shop in our town.
