Edinburgh City Council to to phase out controversial public entertainment system for saunas in Edinburgh.

Today (Feb 3rd 2014) Edinburgh City Council councillors voted to phase out the controversial public entertainment system for saunas in Edinburgh.

Summary of Regulatory Committee, Review of Public Entertainment Licensing

"Committee at its meeting of 15 November 2013 considered a report on licensing of ‘premises of Public Entertainment’. The Committee agreed to consult on proposals to amend the current Public Entertainment Resolution, removing ‘Health and Fitness premises, including premises used as saunas or massage parlours’, from the requirement to obtain a public entertainment licence.

This report advises Committee on the outcome of the statutory consultation.

The report recommends that the licensing of ‘Health and Fitness premises including premises used as saunas or massage parlours’ should cease, as it is no longer appropriate for the Council to license these premises."

The council paper in full can be found attached below.
