CONTROVERSIAL plans to turn a nightclub in Crouch End into a lap-dancing club have been "put on hold".

Owners of the Music Palace in Crouch End have asked the council to cancel a licensing committee meeting due to decide the venue's fate on May 14.

Plans to turn the music venue into a lap-dancing club were received with huge opposition by local residents, councillors and teachers who clubbed together to form the Lapoff campaign.

But the latest news has met with a mixed response by residents who are pleased at the cancellation of the meeting but anxious that the plans have only been put on hold and may still go ahead.

Alison Lilystone, also of Fairfield Road, said: "This is a big relief and, we like to think, not unduly related to the fantastic work of Lapoff campaigners.

"However, we must and will remain vigilant to ensure that we are completely ready if this proposal comes back on the table."
