Hanover Homes presented their scheme for Chandlers Land including:
Good Points
Almost Carbon Neutral
No new vehicular access routes
Riverside walk
Land decontamination
Speeding up flood defence work maybe

Bad Points
A 4 storey block of flats to block views and overlook
Roof gardens noisy
Pedestrian access to Morris Road
Noisy restaurant
Only space for 20 cars - get real

They should replace the restaurant with more homes and lose 2 storeys off the block of flats

Come on Smiler, it's a small price to pay for another pizza joint.

Too true FTR. I am told that precedence is not allowed under planning law...........so we should be alright then.
Smiler you missed out the bridge under good points

I remember someone suggested a bridge from the railway land to the Cliffe a year or two again - is this a possibility now?

It seems that it may well be a possibility. However it depends upon cash and section 106.

Cash - that will pose no problem to the developers as people wishing to move to Lewes are willing to pay over the odds for property - not that that helps the people of Lewes!
Section 106 - not worth anything as the planning and building control depts will manipulate to their advantage.
So how many properties and businesses are proposed for this site?

Is it not obvious that the part of the project in England will be discussed here not in Greece or Lithuania? more
