Birmingham's Broad Street boss is battling to stop a fourth lap-dancing club opening on the city’s so-called Golden Mile.
Mike Olley, manager of the Broad Street Business Improvement District, has objected to plans for the venue, to be called Paradise.
He said he was determined Broad Street would not become like Hamburg's sleazy Reeperbahn.
“We have objected to this licence until we get further clarity and confirmation from the Paradise Club,” Mr Olley said.
“We have severe concerns and they are so strong we are raising a formal objection.
“This is a tactical objection until we can get clarity.
“We are determined Broad Street will not become a Reeperbahn – this is a mixed, family-friendly economy.”
Mr Olley said there were already enough lap-dancing clubs on the road, with the Rocket and Cyclone nightspots vying for trade with Legs 11.
The company behind the Paradise plan, Eutony Limited, has lodged an application for a premises licence with Birmingham City Council.
It claimed West Midlands Police had no problem with the proposal as the force considered such venues low crime risk operations.
The company said in a statement: “Eutony Limited was disappointed to note there was a sole objection from a Mr Mike Olley, submitted after close of office hours and on the last possible date for objection.
“In light of the single objection to the licence application and support of the police, the applicant does not consider the objection raised to have merit.”
A Birmingham City Council spokesman said: “We have received an objection from Broad Street BID regarding the application for a premises licence by the Paradise Club.
“The club’s application will be considered at a future meeting of the licensing sub committee.
“Birmingham City Council has not received an application from the Paradise Club for a licence as a sexual entertainment venue.”
