Family First is calling for brothels in residential areas to be banned after one was shut down by Auckland City Council when clients began knocking on neighbours’ doors instead. It was unacceptable to allow brothels next to family homes, schools, playgrounds or churches, said national director of Family First, Bob McCoskrie, after complaints about similar residential brothels and one operating across the road from Henderson Intermediate School in west Auckland.
Mr McCoskrie said most councils had tried to control the location of brothels because they recognised prostitution may be offensive to members of the community, but a flawed law made that difficult.
Bob McCoskrie talks to Newstalk ZB’s Larry Williams about the concerns over residential brothels
