Strip club plans anger retailers on London's Jermyn Street

Retailers on London’s Jermyn Street, the heart of London’s shirt-making district, are among residents to hit out against plans for a new 235 capacity “gentleman’s club.”

Residents of the street, which is home to shirt makers Turnball & Asser and Emma Willis, have raised more than 20 objections to a licensing application for an opulent pole dancing club, according to the Evening Standard.

One organisation representing local retailers told the newspaper: “Jermyn Street and St James’s have built a worldwide reputation for their British craftsmanship and high-quality establishments. The addition of a sex establishment would severely damage this image and the perception of the street.”

Westminster council’s senior licensing officer David Scyamore has also objected to the planning application.
