Fees on sex shops and brothels tripled

DAWN Crichlow has led a crusade to triple the fees for new sex shops in a bid to "clean up the city".

And she has a warning for the Coast's fast-growing 140 street-corner massage parlours: "You're next".

The veteran Southport councillor successfully pushed for the application fees of new adult shops to increase from as low as $3638 to as much as $9946.

Brothel fees have gone up about $1100.

What do you think of the fee hike?
