Two things … and an important message from our Director of Finance
As we count down to the South Downs National Park Authority’s landmark decision on the North Street/Phoenix Estate planning application by Santon and LDC, here are a couple of important reminders.
Wed 9 Dec – LDC discuss North Street petition
Following Councillor Joanne Carter’s petition to urge Lewes District Council to hold a debate about the North Street redevelopment, which attracted over 3,400 signatures, LDC has included a brief period of time to discuss its objections to the petition tomorrow at its monthly meeting. The meeting is open to the public and starts at 2.30pm at County Hall.
We don’t expect any substantial or meaningful debate to take place but it may be interesting to come along to finally hear LDC’s arguments for supporting such a controversial development. More info here:

Thurs 10 Dec – Watch the North Street planning decision LIVE online
The South Downs National Park Authority will convene to make its decision on the Santon/LDC plan at County Hall, Lewes, on Thursday 10th December at 9.45am. Lewes Phoenix Rising, businesses from the estate and both town and district councillors will be speaking in objection to the plan.
All places to attend the meeting in person are now taken. But you will be able to watch live coverage of the meeting (which is scheduled to run until 1pm) on this link:
… And finally
We want to say a big THANK YOU to all our signatories for your support over the past 18 months in fighting to secure a sustainable and innovative development that truly is worthy of Lewes and the South Downs National Park. Our Director of Finance and Administration, Richard Moore, has a very special message for everyone who’s been involved in this fight.
