The Lewes District Local Plan is about to be examined in public by a planning inspector. The examination lasts two weeks, starting on 20 January, and takes place in the East Platinum Lounge (you couldn’t make it up!) at the Amex Stadium.
The plan for North Street is will be looked at on Thursday 22 January, from 9.30am. Everyone is welcome to attend. Lewes Phoenix Rising (LPR) will be represented in the discussion, led by the inspector, about the policy for North Street and Eastgate.
Our position is set out in the attached statement and appendices. We believe that we have strong arguments to over-turn the existing policy which will in turn severely hamper the Santon/LDC planning application.
This is the first part of our strategy for 2015 to challenge the current approach to the Phoenix Estate. The team is now working on the rest of our plans for this year, which we will let you know about in the next week or so.
Happy New Year to everyone and, as ever, thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
The LPR Team
