What is being built in place of the buildings they have just knocked down next to the car park in the centre of town - the opposite side to the magistrates' court they have also just knocked down? More houses?

Where exactly is this please? The Magistrates Court being knocked down is bad enough.

Do you mean the old Magistrates Court Car Park? It was not part of the sale, we were told. It's now hoarded up and being used as a site office for the mag court desecration.
Very strange.

the original shanty town between Vipers Wharf and Stricklands Warehouse is being replaced with mixed development of flats and shops - I think! The plans I saw a year or so ago show a series of tall warehouse type buildings matching their neighbours, so, if this is the case, this can only be an improvement on the demolished shacks. The developer is a local chap with a good track record for good modern design - check out Timberyard Lane.

Great, more shops, is that like the big one in the old Sussex Express (or cinema) building that is still empty a year after it was built! Brilliant!
I take exception to the idea that the area between vipers warf ( a new name given only afew months ago) and the old (but a few years ago decrepit) slate building. St John ambulance have had to move so many times in lewes just so someone can make yet more money out of what ever building they were renting....I don't actually hate modern buildings, but I do dispise people who talk about old buildings a decrepit and in need of deveopment because they are ignorant of history and what builds a town, they just want to obliterate the past with no mercy.

can I ask bastian why you are taking exception to an area being called a name it was known by local many many moons ago as a brief such of local history would inform you

What about that big empty building built on North Street, next to the telephone exchange (also empty) and the NHS building (also empty). I think it was built to replace a building at Commercial Square, now flats. Something to do with law enforcement, but I haven't tried the phone outside to see who owns it.

It had never occurred to me that these days a lot of telephone exchanges are pretty much redundant!
If it serves no useful purpose, then it should be used for housing imo. It's much better to re-use old town centre sites than to develop on the fringes of the town and encroach into the countryside.

I think you mean the white 30s style building that was the 'River Clinic' . Warehouse -style buildings are being built. Thought it was just as housing. You can bet they will be 'luxury' apartments - like the Timberyard/riverside development opposite the Railway lands where the 4 bed houses are being offered for about 1.4 million.....

1.4 million ?!?
Thanks for the information.
I agree about the building on North street - it does seem to be a massive building to house a phone. If you have to meet an officer there (!!) then you turn up and ring the phone - the people answering the phone aren't in the building but then ring the officer on a mobile and they appear in their car/bike a few minutes later and open the building up for the meet to take place. Well that was my experience anyway.
