Still 12 hr to demand they beef up the requirement for affordable housing.
The current version is little more than a hope kindly developers will help out, out of the goodness of their little hearts.

Can the Lewes Core Strategy carry any weight when the Government is able to move the goalposts at will (see link). The problem with these monolithic and inflexible documents is that take so long to produce that they are often out of date before they are even released.

I took time out to (try to) read it ysterday. What an absolute load of tripe! It says nothing really, is full of "sustainablility" rubbish (God, I hate that word) and has nothing in it of real substance. Written by people with little or no grasp of reality. Whi is it aimed at? Nobody who lives in the real world, that's for sure.

It's supposed to interpret government policy for the local area. It's for us all, but mostly useful to local government and those dealing with local government.

Although 'sustainable' is a much over-used word, in times when energy prices are set to continue their inexorable rise (and natural resources are finite and diminishing rapidly) it's a pretty important concept.

Still, a pretty useless document when the government can drive a cart and horse through it at will (as it looks like they are just about to).

I agree, but I don't expect to be heard, it's not about that anymore because money screams from the roof tops.

Just had a quick read through (even though it's just too late to comment). Actually looks ok to me. Affordable housing at 40% for large schemes and a reduced requirement for smaller scemes seems fair. Robust policies for protecting retail uses on the high street. On the sustainability policies, Code for Sustainable homes level 3 looks a bit under ambitious to me. I'd have thought level 4 a minimum.
