I have been following the forum conversation with interest regarding the boot sale escapade on Sunday, which I totally agree, as a resident of Lewes, is a joke. However, I can assure you all that you haven't got your facts right on Rees Elliot (not Mr Reece) involvement. They only own the bus station and have nothing to do with this area. I know as I act as the agent for Rees Elliott, the access road is owned by a London investment company, who purchased the site last year. Have no idea if they are the ones instructing the clamping, but certainly it has absolutley nothing to do with Rees Elliott!

I am not surprised that the site isn't owned by Rees/Elliot, why would it be?
I am sorry to hear that you have to be their agent. You have everyone's sympathy, and I do hope that you are still getting paid in these troubled times.

Tee hee! Obviously certain developers in Lewes lurk on here to check in on what we say about them - bit unnerved are we then?! Excellent!
Chris - are you the Oakley who popped that leaflet through the door with the enormous London bus on it about selling our homes to Londoners because nobody local can afford to buy in the town anymore?

Here is some more bad news then: Rees Elliott have mothballed the huge chalkpit in The Avenue. Work has completely stopped on that site. Presumably once they have sold the Laundrette properties in De Montfort Road they might just be able to scrape together enough cash for another shovel and some 2x4s?

I understand that the London Investment Company in question is called "Cheval". Regardless, it was an underhand stunt to play at 8am on a Sunday morning.
Being underhand and deceiptful are recognised characteristics of a certain Mr Elliott, so it understandable that local people made an educated guess as to who the culprit was.
New enemy of Lewes = CHEVAL.

CHEVAL - Anagram of El Chav. Is he Spanish?

Anyone else get a postcard on their windscreen or through their door pleading us to buy their houses in 'the orchard' on Malling brooks? At least the printing industry and littering are doing ok in the housing market slump - and they just got planning permission to build 28 more right next door! That is two flyers in two weeks from Oakley - agent for Ress Elliott thinking of more creative ways to sell a house - can't wait for the next one now. Maybe they need some more ideas: how about buy one get one free, or happy hour with 50% off, or as suggested on the radio yesterday why doesn't a housing association buy them all at knockdown price and make them affordable to locals. Just an idea.

It is a little strange that the Avenue Chalk Pit has been mothballed, because it had a sold sign on it at one point. Has that sale fallen through?
A special hello to all the Estate Agents reading the forum.

I think Chris isn't aware of the property slump. He's got a semi in North Way (Nevill) on at FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY GRAND. Good luck with that one Chris.
