Sex establishments

Sex Establishments are required to be licensed under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, Schedule 3. Section 2 of the Act provides for the adoption of the provisions contained within Schedule 3, which then allows Local Authorities who have set in place these procedures to control sex establishments in their area by way of a licensing regime.

Licences are granted for a one year period, subject to terms and conditions.

The supply, sale or demonstration of articles which are manufactured for use primarily for the purposes of birth control or primarily related to birth control are exempt.
