Pub which failed to get lap dancing consent plus Georgian hotel go up for sale in Wisbech
A WISBECH pub where residents fought to stop a lap dancing club from opening has been put up for sale.
The Clarkson Arms is being offered for sale for �375,000 just over a year after the owners failed to persuade Fenland Council to grant them a licence for lap dancing.
A handful of residents had complained that allowing lap dancing could cause noise and disturbance to the neighbourhood.
The licensing committee agreed it was “not an appropriate location” and rejected the application.
Now the pub is up for sale along with another local pub and a local hotel- all being offered for sale this week.
