Bosses at a Preston lapdancing club have applied to extend its opening hours.
If changes are approved, Perfect 10s in Lune Street will become one of the latest opening venues in the city centre.
The club has individual licences for the performance of live music, performance of recorded music, performance of dance, and the sale of alcohol.
Currently, the sale of alcohol is permitted from 11am to 3am Monday to Friday, and from 11am to 12.30am on Sundays.
All of the peformances are currently allowed from 7pm to 3am Monday to Saturday, and from 7pm to 12.30am on Sundays.
Bosses at the venue want to extend all the licenses by two hours. With the same opening times, all would run to 5am from Monday to Saturday and to 2.30am on Sundays.
It follows on from Preston’s other strip club - Room 32 in Guildhall Street - having been allowed to extend its opening times in July.
Room 32 is now permitted to sell alcohol from 6pm to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and from 6pm to 12.30pm on Sunday.
It is allowed to host performances of live music and dance between 6pm and 5am Monday to Saturday, and from 6pm to 1am on Sundays.
Town centre councillor Drew Gale said he would be supportive of the Perfect 10s application.
He said: “A bit of competition never did anyone any harm.
“I think regardless of what the business is, it’s good to encourage more commerce and people into the city centre.
“I don’t think we’re going to end up with a 24/7 culture, but it fits in with the After Hours project the council is working on.
“We’re hoping to get a wider range of activities going on for all different kinds of people later at night.”
No one from Perfect 10s was available for comment when approached by the Evening Post yesterday.
