BROTHELS and adult book stores have no place in the future of Liverpool's city centre under changes to the local environment plan.
At last month's meeting, councillors moved to prohibit future sex service premises in the CBD.
Liverpool already has a high concentration of sex service premises in the CBD along George Street.
The approved motion will not affect existing premises, but will prevent the development of further premises in and around the city centre.
Deputy mayor Mazhar Hadid said the council was focused on revitalising the city and developing a centre that was a vibrant and safe place for families and local business.
"The community and businesses are telling us that Liverpool CBD is not the right location for sex industry businesses," he said.
"The council wants to ensure that Liverpool is seen as a great place to live and raise a family and we want Liverpool to be the first choice for businesses in Sydney's south-west.
"So the council listened to our residents who have raised concerns with the proliferation of sex service premises in the city centre, especially those within close proximity to primary schools."
A brothel and swingers' club is at present in operation across from Liverpool Public School.
