'Lewes Sarah' if you came to a Lewes Town Council planning meeting you might hear how we try, as a mere parish council, ie not the planning authority, to 'rein in bland developments'. However as I am sure you will know objections to planning have to be on planning grounds and blandness and dullness are sadly not usually planning grounds.

Actually Merlin a large chunk of the NPPF is encouraging planning authorities to insist on good design. You might well ask whether Lewes planners have read this bit.

"Is there ANY chance you 3 could meet in a pub and chat about TTWTF or whatever it is you're on about rather than foist it on us? I know I should strive to be as enlightened as you are to whatever you're going on about and will try to be a better person tomorrow".

I think the building looks great, 'good design' really is subjective so perhaps not really sufficient parameters in planning to encapsulate that for you? Anyway it's a thumbs up from me. Looking forward to seeing what went into building it tonight.

This thread is rather curious - have some posts been deleted ? Still , it's a bloody ugly building and ruins the sight line along the river as you enter Lewes on the A26. Really good design doesn't ruin the land/townscape, however modern or innovative it is . I rest my case by citing 'Falling Water'.

ugly, out of character, weird colour,nothing that fits into the architecture of Lewes in any context-all the other buildings (starting at 650,000) close by are exactly the same. Architects seem to have lost the plot. The one that looks like a boat along the river looks well thought out, it's designed for flooding and doesn't impinge on the skyline or colour of the area.

Surprised no one has been miffed by Kevin saying Lewes was in West Sussex yet...
I have to say that I drive by once a week and while I noticed work was going on, I haven't yet noticed the finished building. Guess at least I know I'm concentrating on the road!

Couldn't quite believe how ugly this building is, doesn't fit in with locality and spoils views. Something seriously wrong with planning process to allow such a vanity project, but then not first carbuncle I've seen in Lewes sadly.

Looks good. It's good to see something completely different. I think it's a grower.

Normal people who don't have to pass a citizenship test to live in a quaint little town in the commuter belt.
Or is Lewes "a local town for local people"?
