  • Liverpool makes bid for first legal prostitution zone in UK

    Liverpool has approved plans to set up a red light district to allow legal prostitution.

    The plan, supported overwhelmingly by the city council, must now be submitted to the Home Office for approval.

    "The council has voted with an overwhelming majority to approach the Home Office with our plans," a council spokeswoman said.

    "It is now up to the Home Office to decide if we can have the UK's first official managed zone."

    The proposed red light zone would follow the model used in the Dutch city of Utrecht, where prostitutes can ply their trade only at night, in an industrial area of the inner city and away from homes and operating businesses.

    It would be easily accessible by car and public transport, and have ample parking.

    The plan also includes security measures including police patrols, closed-circuit cameras, a health and welfare centre and controlled entrances and exits to ensure only sex workers and their clients used the area.

    Liverpool councillors did not decide which area of their city would be designated as a vice zone, although two were proposed by researchers from the Liverpool John Moores University.

    Councillor Flo Clucas said the plan was intended to make prostitutes safer at work and at the same time "to offer them all the support and help necessary to get out of the sex trade".

    A spokesman from the Home Office in London said they were looking into possible "managed zones" of prostitution, but said it would require new legislation to make them legal.

    "Any change to the law would be subject to the usual parliamentary process, with the usual thorough debate and scrutiny," he said.
