This consultation has now closed

This is our first Sex Establishment Policy since our formation on the 1 April 2019 from the former Bournemouth Borough Council, Christchurch Borough Council and the Borough of Poole.

This Policy will allow us to control and regulate the operation of Sex Establishments within the whole Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area. The draft policy sets out the licence application process, and the grounds for refusing an application, these do not include refusal on the grounds of moral/values objections as the activities are permitted by the legislation.

Sex Establishments falls into three categories; sex shops, sexual entertainment venues and sex cinemas.

The new policy does not propose to set any limits on the number or location of sex establishments unlike previous policies.
