Yes. I would take my children to the Albion matches too. I've been to Withdean and the atmosphere is electric. You should try it. Falmer would suit me as a Lewes resident because I could be there in 5 mins. If it was my back yard then maybe I would think again.

I'm sure after all these years that the albion know its the best site. I'm all for it. By the way WTF are Lewes Council doing spending 60,000 of our cash on opposing the stadium

What a pity LDC didn't spend sixty grand opposing the developments at the Baxters site and Walwers Lane. There again LDC used to own Walwers lane and sold it for development. Coincidence? It seems that all a developer has to do is wave a wad of cash and the planning committee fall over them selfs to grant permission. What's the betting that if the Reece/Elliot partnership put in an application to demolish Anne of Cleeve and replace it with a Berni Inn, it would be passed?

I suggest you gem up on planning law etc before making groundless comments. I am sure if they sold it for a song, then you would complain that the officers were be negligent - just can't win.
I do not think Berni Inns still exist, probably renamed serving up some pretentious pre-prepared muck masquerading as haute cuisine. Anyway there are enough football teams, how about something useful. A sanctuary for abused farm animals - to escape the menace of factory farming, one of the most brutal things us "humans" do.

No disrespect mystic mog but it is a capitalist society and money talks. Although very comendable saving the poor farm animals, they don't make money whereas a football stadium will generate thousands and bring a little sunshine into some peoples lives.

Also, Brighton and Hove Albion have been around since 1901. They beat Chelsea at the Goldstone ground. remember the Goldstone? You know, the ground they were robbed of by the chairman/property developer. They are battling well today and bring a lot of happiness to families from all over Sussex. They deserve a good stadium. At present, Ringmer has a better ground. Look at the jobs the stadium would create, both during and after its build. I would love for my kids to have a focus on a Saturday afternoon as well as somewhere to go other times other than stand on street corners making a nuisance of themselves.The Albion needs Falmer, so do you !!

But Ringmer has easier parking and a better club for having a pint.

yeah granted Rinmger has much better parking than Lewes. that is something that desperately needs to be sorted out in the future. plus the parking wardens have a field day when Lewes play at home. i think the Rook Inn is rather good... especially since it has been refurbished.

No way should Brighton be allowed to spoil the Downs. They should use some of the plentiful brown belt in Brighton.

Well I think its a great idea. The sports facilities round here are pretty poor really. The design has taken into account the environmental sensitivity and the stadium will be in a hollow so it won't be visible from the South Downs Way . Its just what Falmer needs and the Universities would benefit enormously. Its not really on that a handful of residents stand in the way of the vast majority of local opinion. I mean LDC always listen to the majority right!?

hahaha LDC listens to no one!!! theyre adament not to have the Falmer stadium. and how many Lewes residents opposed the new parking scheme?! only around 99.99% of us... theres the majority and it still went ahead.

LDC should have spent the money apposing Falmer on the Pells Pool,that would have kept it open for a couple of years and bring heaps of enjoyment to Residents of Lewes District. Why sould i be asked to pay 15% more council tax to help pay fighting a cause the majority want?? Have LDC gone MAD, who voted for them??Remember there's an election this year P.s Ringmer have John Crumplin Football Genius

He is busy trying to get an electricity pylon removed that he says is an eyesore, it was only moved 10yards a couple of years ago, Why didn't he bend over backwards to get it removed then?? Something to do with that election again i guess!! I'm sure he is against a Falmer stadium as well, but i do remember seeing him enjoying Brighton FCs hospitality FOC at their 1st game back in Sussex at Withdean,some 5 years ago,Was that an election year??Withdean isn't a suitable location by the way!!

Now that it's been anounced that Lewes cannot go up regardless of where they finish, expect to see alot of the current squad leaving come summer. King has given the board a verbal agreement that he will stay for the next season, but don't hold your breath on that one.
