Delay to new sex entertainment licensing powers in Welwyn Hatfield

NEW powers to control the number and locations of lap dancing and strip clubs will not come into force until the new year.

Welwyn Hatfield Council had originally set a date of December 1 to introduce Setion 27 of the Policing and Crime Act into the borough, but due to an “administrative error” a public notice failed to appear in the WHT.

The new date has now been set as January 1.
