Opposition to a proposed lap dancing club in West Kensington is growing as protestors stage repeated rallies.
More than 1,000 protestors have signed petitions opposing the venue above the former Fox pub in North End Crescent. At 9am yesterday morning campaigners gathered outside the building to voice their disapproval.
Their protest follows a similar demonstration on Friday last week when objectors were joined by Hammersmith and Fulham MP Greg Hands and Acton, Ealing and Shepherd's Bush MP Andrew Slaughter.
Mohamad Chehad, who has a nine-year-old son called Omar, has signed one of the petitions. The 58-year-old said: "A year ago, I bought a flat in Mornington Crescent just around the corner from the place. If I had known this was planned I would not have bought it.
"If it goes ahead, I will have to leave. I am worried about what sort of people this will attract and what my son might see."
The developers state that the club will not open in school hours and will be run in a highly professional manner with trained door staff. They added £2million has been invested to ensure the venue with be of the 'highest standard.'
A Hammersmith and Fulham licensing committee hearing will be held on Thursday, November 6, at 6.30pm in the Town Hall in King Street, Hammersmith.
