Overwhelming support for latest LPR plans
Last week’s public consultation on our updated plans for part of the Phoenix Estate, ‘Phoenix Works’, attracted well over 500 people and overwhelming public support. A big thank you to everyone who came.
Visitors supported our sustainable approach to development, including light renovation of the Ironworks buildings to keep low-cost work space in the centre of town, and our designs for social housing. In tweets, Maria Caulfield MPpraised us for a “very good public consultation” and William Hardie of Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces singled out our public car park (which can be converted to residential use), and innovative, flood resilient micro-homes. Among the many comments, the need for genuinely affordable homes for local people and those on the Council housing waiting list were predominant.
A PDF of the exhibition can be downloaded below. A condensed version of the exhibition will be on at the Old Foundry Workshops, 32 North Street (next to the Foundry Gallery) from 9 November until the end of the year (Monday to Friday, 10am – 5pm).
What happens next?
We will be taking these updated plans to the South Downs National Park for a second Design Review on 18 November. Why? Because we want the Park planning authority to be aware there is a better and well-supported alternative to the Santon/LDC plan, which they will determine on 10 December at County Hall.
