London council saves gay fetish club from developers

Following a six-year planning battle, Tower Hamlets Council in London has ruled against a development of flats by a subsidiary of Galliard Homes on the grounds that it would “harm the long-term provision of a nightclub that serves the LGBT+ community”. The decision means the 34-year-old Backstreet Bar will be spared from closure.
