A new dance studio is set to open next door to a city lap dancing club.Advertisement
The Essentials store on Lune Street could become a dance studio.
Yvonne Dillon, who runs the ladies clothing company, has applied for planning permission to convert 9 Lune Street into the studio.
Lancashire Police have raised concerns about the importance of the studio having lockers for storing valuables during classes.
Rachel Emmett, architectural liaison officer for Lancashire Constabulary, writes: “I would stress the importance of lockers for the storage of personal belongings to reduce the risk of theft while classes are being held.”
She has requested more information from the applicant or for a security condition to be attached to any planning permission.
Anyone wishing to comment on the application should do so by Wednesday 27 December by commenting at the council website or email [email protected] quoting reference number 06/2013/0821.
