Consultation: Sex establishments in Bristol

19 August, 2019


Bristol City Council is reviewing its Sex Establishment Policy which set out the Council’s policy for licensing and regulating sex establishments. The draft policy has been expanded to cover all types of sex establishment, including sexual entertainment venues, sex shops and sex cinemas.

This consultation would be of interest to a number of VCSE organisations. The feedback from the survey will be used to help inform a new draft policy with a view to publishing a final policy later in the year.

The consultation will run from 16 August 2019 to 10 November 2019.  The results of the consultation will be reviewed by the working group.  Amendments will be made to the draft Sex Establishment Policy as necessary and it will then be presented to the Full Licensing Committee for consideration to approve the policy. 

The consultation consists of a number of questions and an opportunity to make any further comments outside of those questions should you wish to:
