I think there must have been over 1000 new homes built in Lewes in the last 50 years, probably by over 100 architects / developers under the watch of many planners.
Can anyone suggest which of these they like (not what they don't), and why, to establish that the vocal of Lewes are not NIMBYS but will embrace some forms of development?

I was just watching "The Hobbit". Those Dwarves had the right idea, hollow out a mountain. Shall we start under Cuilfail? Bit gloomy but what with all the power being produced by the turbines I am sure we could lighten it up. My other genius idea is mini one person houseboats, there was a mooring going for £24,000 I believe.

I think "inarticulated lorry" would be more appropriate.

I quite like the new Rydon Homes houses next to South Malling School, despite their prominence on the skyline as you look up towards them from the Cliffe or when approaching Lewes down the A26 from Uckfield.
And the last 50 years would include the smaller houses on the Malling estate, built in the late 1970s & early 1980s. They seem to have stood the test of time pretty well - nice spacious houses for the money, good community, decent accommodation with the motor car, still sell and let like hot cakes when available.
