Fireworks and Plots … and Plans
Lewes District Council have sent out their ideas for development of some of their sites, including Ham Lane, Christie Road and others – see leaflet. Do these represent the transition we want for Lewes?
There’s an alternative – Lewes Neighbourhood Plan could set the planning requirements for any site in the Neighbourhood Area, including these sites – in effect becoming part of the ‘rule book’ against which these proposals will be assessed. Lewes & Ouse Valley eco-nomics’ focus remains with the Neighbourhood Plan and valuing the ecological and social benefits of potential development sites that usually get ignored … Now’s the time to get involved.
