A new nightclub which was refused planning permission will open after its owners won a legal ruling.

Tequila Nightclub will open at the former Jinnah curry house on Westgate after an appeal against a decision by Wakefield Council planners.

The council refused planning permission to turn the Grade-II listed Georgian town-house into a commercial nightclub last September, saying it would be detrimental because the building would be unused during the day and it would add to crime and disorder in the city.

But owner M&S Leisure appealed to the planning inspectorate and has been told it can open the club.

M&S Leisure owner Kevin Spencer said: “We are going to be opening the club this Easter.”
