Objection to license: "Coco Sports Bar & Gentlemans Club" sign now

We, the undersigned, object to the planning application for "Coco Sports Bar & Gentlemans Club" at 91 Norwood High Street, SE27 9JS

Research undertaken by the Lilith Project in 2003 in Camden found that in the years following the opening of a lap dance club on Tottenham Court Road, reports of female rape increased by 50\% and reports of sexual assaults against women increased by 50\%. (Eden, 2003)
The numbers of reported rapes around lap dance clubs is three times the national average. (Eden, 2003)

As these premises are located in close proximity to the train station and bus garage, many women and children terminate their journeys at these points and walk home alone at night. Statistics show that women feel more threatened travelling at night than men, and are more likely to restrict their travel plans based on fear of crime. (TfL, 2004) As there are no alternative options for many local residents, the proposed change of use causes great concern.
