Provest aims to dim red lights

NO new brothels would be allowed in the Tweed Shire under a proposed crackdown and review of legal brothel numbers envisaged by National Party state MP for Tweed Geoff Provest.

Mr Provest said yesterday a coalition government, if elected after next month's state election, would review current brothel legislation and he hoped that would result in a cap on brothel numbers in certain areas.

He hopes that could mean no new brothels in the Tweed – ending continuing legal stoushes in the NSW Land and Environment Court between brothel developers and Tweed Shire Council which has been opposing new brothels.

“I've had a number of discussions with colleagues and they believe there should be a review of the current legislation and a tightening up,” said Mr Provest.

“The issue I want to float is adopting a cap to the number of brothels allowed in certain areas.

“There should be a cap similar to licensed premises, chemists and newsagents.
