A DECISION on whether a Crouch End nightclub can offer lap dancing has been deferred to a later date because a meeting overran last night (Thursday).
Members of Haringey's licensing committee met at Wood Green Civic Centre to decide whether the Music Palace in Tottenham Lane can offer lap dancing and strip shows from 6pm to 2am on weekdays and until 11pm on Sundays.
The applicants have also requested a licence to sell alcohol from 11am to 2am Monday to Saturday and 11am to 11pm on Sundays.
The meeting was adjourned to a later unspecified date because it took two hours to hear objections to the application - which the owners of the Music Palace have a right to reply to.
Crouch End councillor David Winskill was among the people who urged the licensing committee to reject the application.
He said: "How can anyone be proud of a lap dancing club? It is hardly the kind of establishment that engenders a sense of civic pride - directly going against one of the stated objectives of [Haringey's] sustainable communities strategy.

"I defy the applicant or her representative to explain to me and my community how plonking a lap dancing club opposite an infants' school and in the middle of a residential area where hundreds of children live helps to achieve these goals."
