Bid for strip club in listed building

Plans have been submitted to Leeds City Council to turn part of a listed building into a lap dancing club.

Proposals, in the name of Elizabeth Morris, have been drawn up to convert part of Waterloo House on Assembly Street near the railway arches into a sexual entertainment venue.

The grade II listed building, which dates back to 1777, housed the Mezz nightclub before it had its licence axed last year amid controversy over a student night.

An application statement prepared by DeCosmos Architecture says: “The bar and most of the entertainment facilities are located on the ground floor.

“However, private dancing booths will be located on the first floor.”

The application comes six months after half of the city’s six lap dancing venues had their licences scrapped following the introduction of a new Leeds City Council policy limiting numbers to a maximum of four.
