It seems another developer, Alfred Homes have bought the old Chandler builders merchants site next top the river and are going to "develop superb homes of exceptional distinction to blend with the local environment."

There is to be a presentation of the scheme on Friday 15th July at the site
Hanover House
Timberyard Lane

All views are welcome apparently

Yes, but DFLs will buy them and they have wellies surely ?

Looks like they have got Prince Charles acting as their 'architect' if their other developments are any guide. Dreadful toy town Georgian executive boxes. Usual hyperbole: 'stunning' this and 'magnificent' that. I am very happy for development in Lewes and I understand it has to be on a commercial footing but this stuff belongs elsewhere.

Vesbod,wellies maybe but,insurance? Big fat no if anyone is daft enough to think of buying here.

What's the insurance position now down South Street? Houses seems to be changing hands down there like there's no tomorrow.

I've never seen a georgian house on stilts before..that could be amusing.If they aren't then they are going to have to issue life boats with the houses.

Clifford - I think you'll find its just a few houses in South Street that are constantly up for sale, don"t know why especially that one opposite the chip shop. As for the development hope its a bit better than the flats built on the gas works (and they won an award for that pile ****).

The Land at the bottom of Mayhew Way does not have any planning permisson,
it expired in 2009.

The Mayhew Way plot is also a massive sponge that stops the bottom of Malling from flooding every time there's a light shower. If you think people moving onto the Chandlers site are going to need wellies, anyone living in that field should it ever get developed are going to need scuba gear.

Jan. whats wrong with the flats on the old gas works ? Are there not houses there as well ?
On 5 Jul 2011 at 1:31pm Jan wrote:
Kitty cat - if you take a walk down Morris Road you will see how they overshadow the houses down there. Or view them from the Riverside. There nothing wrong with them in the right place, but where they are they are too large and look out of place.
So why would an architect win an award for that ? There is no excuse for ugly buildings.

I happen to live in the UGLY buildings on the Gas works. There is nowt wrong with them except when people come round behind my flat and gawp at the peasants and stare straight into my flat. I hope you are not one of the afore mentioned people.

I don't think that they are that bad compared to the ones at the beginning of Timberyard Lane or the ones behind the boat yard.
