We did it! Thanks to you we've met out £5K target - the minimum needed to initiate legal proceedings against a council having no limit on strip clubs.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who donated!!
And if you haven't, but would like to contribute to this ground breaking challenge you still can here. Any extra raised could be used if the case goes through to the next stage or to better support the team right now.
What happens now? The legal team submits papers making the case that Sheffield City Council did not consider equality law when it decided there should be no limit on strip clubs. A Judge then decides if we have a case.
If the Judge says 'yes' this send a strong message to the entire strip industry and all local councils that they must consider equality law properly when forming their policies over strip clubs. It also means we could potentially pursue the case further and take the Council to court which would force it to re-write its policy and of course sends an even stronger message to local councils and the strip industry.
We’ll keep you posted over the coming weeks.
And a HUGE THANK YOU again!!!
