Australia's mega brothel expansion rejected

A proposal to set up Australia's largest brothel in Sydney has been shot down by the city council.

An application for the 'Stiletto bordello' at Camperdown, in the city's inner-west, was turned down by a full meeting of the city council last night, even as councillors declared that they were "no prudes".

The plans of a 12-million dollar mega brothel were the brainchild of millionaire Eddie Hayson and his Artazan Property Group who wanted to expand it to 40 working rooms and 21 waiting rooms.

The Camperdown bordello would have been Australia's largest, more than double the size of the one's in the cities like Brisbane and Melbourne and much more like the famous bordellos in L.A.

The Australia's biggest bordello was shot down when all the 10 councillors voted against allowing the expansion to proceed.

"It's the Westfield of brothels", councillor Shayne Mallard said. "We're not prudes, we're not opposed to brothels, but we have a policy of anti-clustering, spreading them out," said another councillor to justify their stand.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore, "I'm concerned about the impact that a brothel of this size is going to have on the local community."
