The spa first ran into difficulties after Spelthorne Borough Council received complaints from nearby residents raising concerns over the property, which they said was operating as a sex club and not a domestic property.The council ruled that due to the green-belt location of the club and the lack of a licence to be used as an adult members club, all structures erected should be removed and trading should stop.Disputing the decision Tattershall embarked on a three year legal battle and the case was heard all the way up to the Court of Appeal, but in 2016 he was told he had to dismantle the buildings and cease trading.However the pair continued to run the club despite being given a year to halt operations and were ordered to pay back the money they had made in this time.The ill-gotten gains of the spa were made between July 2017 and January of this year, with the club finally closing its doors in February.A spokesman for Spelthorne Borough Council said that after losing a series appeals Kestrel Hydro, which had been operating in Horton Road, Stanwell Moor, has been closed down.Kestrel Hydro was refused planning permission in July 2013 after the structures and use were ruled “inappropriate” for a residential area in the green belt, but its use continued. A couple who owned a sex dungeon in Surrey have been ordered to pay £45,000 after the court heard they ran the den despite being told to shut it down.The duo, who established a private members’ sex club where punters had to always be naked apart from flip-flops, were ordered to hand over the money after it was ruled the funds were the proceeds of a crime.Directors of the Kestrel Hydro Spa, Graham Tattershall and Ann Trewren, attended Guildford Crown Court on Friday after losing numerous appeals against a council enforcement order which said the sex dungeon was “inappropriate” for a residential area.The nudist group at Stanwell Moor, near Heathrow Airport, was run for more than 10 years and featured a swimming pool, sauna and sex dungeon.The couple were ordered to pay back £22,500 each and were also told they will be sentenced for their crimes of ignoring the council enforcement orders at a future date. The court heard that Tattershall was struggling financially and would need at least six weeks to pay back the money, with Trewen getting 14 days to pay back her share.The pair were also ordered to pay court costs, with Trewen told to pay back £4,453 and Tattershall landed with a £3,291.87 bill for the proceedings. The spokesman added: “The council served an enforcement notice in August 2013 requiring the unauthorised use to stop and for associated outbuildings and hard-standing to be removed.”The club appealed against the enforcement notice a number of times but the Court of Appeal finally dismissed the last appeal in July 2016 and refused permission for there to be any further appeal.”They had 12 months from that date to comply with the enforcement notice served in August 2013 as amended slightly by the Planning Inspectorate.”As the club had continued to operate, after the compliance period had ended, the council obtained an injunction against the owner/occupier of Kestrel Hydro in December 2017, giving them until January 31 2018 to comply.”Kestrel Hydro is no longer being advertised online as a private members’ club and the outbuildings have been removed, although action to ensure full compliance with the injunction is ongoing.” The nudist group at Stanwell Moor, jointly run by Ann Trewen, Surrey was run for more than 10 years Credit:Vagner Vidal/INS Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
