Future Policy Development of Sexual Entertainment Venues

Closes 6 Apr 2020

Opened 16 Jan 2020

Overview

Recently, the Scottish Government passed legislation giving Local Authorities a discretionary power to licence Sexual Entertainment Venues. 

This consultation and evidence gathering process is undertaken to seek views on the licensing and regulation of Sexual Entertainment Venues, with the purpose of determining whether Sexual Entertainment Venues should be licensed within Perth and Kinross.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation is an important stage in the future decision making process and possible development of a Sexual Entertainment Venue policy statement. It is essential in establishing the evidential basis as to whether or not Sexual Entertainment Venues in Perth and Kinross should be licensed.

We are therefore seeking your views on a range of issues associated with Sexual Entertainment Venues.  We are particularly keen to hear about the impact Sexual Entertainment Venues may have upon residents and businesses.

In particular, we are seeking views on:

  • whether a licensing regime should be adopted to licence and regulate Sexual Entertainment Venues.
  • what the appropriate number of Sexual Entertainment Venues in Perth and Kinross should be,  if Sexual Entertainment Venues were to be licensed.
  • if the Committee were to decide to pass a resolution to licence SEVs, what matters should be taken into consideration in the development of a Sexual Entertainment Venue policy statement.
