COUNCILLORS will meet next month to decide whether to grant a renewal of a license to a controversial sex shop in a Suffolk town.
The shop, in Queens Street, Haverhill was the subject of intense protest from local people when it opened last year.
But a spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said that just two objections have been lodged about the shop so far, with the consultation period set to end tomorrow.
That is a far cry from last year's public furore when plans for the shop were first revealed, which saw the council inundated with 120 complaints.
