Licensing chiefs consider ‘adult club’ plan in Sheffield

Have your say

PLANS have been submitted for an ‘adult club’ in a Sheffield suburb.

West Yorkshire-based A&D UK Limited, owned by Adrian Pearson, has applied for a licence for premises on Effingham Street, Attercliffe, which would be named ‘Paradise’.

The premises are set to be open from 11am until 6am, seven days a week, and the proposed layout includes a bar and lounge on the ground floor, plus three bedrooms and a spa upstairs.

Mr Pearson said the premises would have CCTV and would be for clients aged over 18 only.

Admittance would be restricted, with customers having to enter via a door which would have an electronic lock and camera.

He said large groups or drunken people would not be allowed inside.

Mr Pearson has also pledged that customers would be challenged for proof of age if appropriate.

Police have not objected to the application but Julie Hague, licensing project manager for Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board, has called for all clients to be asked for ID if they appear to be under 25.

Sheffield Council’s licensing board will make a decision on the application at a meeting tomorrow.
