Scarborough Council has refused to grant a license to a new lap dancing bar.
The applicant, Mike Walker, had hoped to open Little Black Book above CHIC in Waterhouse Lane.
However, this morning the committee rejected the application unanimously due to the layout of the building.
The committee was concerned that the dancers would have to change downstairs before making their way through CHIC to the club.
Also it had concerns about the increased number of people in Waterhouse Lane spoiling ‘the character’ of the area.
