The Lewes Repertory Theatre have submitted a new planning application to the SDNPA (SDNP/14/03805/FUL) for re-use of the Old Magistrates Court to save it from demolition, not really sure how they managed to raise 1m plus to buy it?

Cinema would have adequate parking so what excuse would the council come up with?

Quora, yes you have and what a poor application it is. Lewes wants and needs what the Lewes Rep theatre offers, not an ugly cheap looking box you propose.

The updated plans from Quora look far worse than those they originally submitted. Maybe they should start from scratch and hold a competition for the design? Their current architect seems to have lost the plot.

Perhaps it could be the Dinosaur Park. Then the residents could nosh their way up the town, Godzilla-style, then devour County Hall.
If it were done at night we wouldn't lose too many Councillors.

Skeptical green shame you could not make the Town Council's planning meeting. We were in favour of the proposed change of use application from Lewes Repertory Theatre.

Why don't you come to the public meeting at the White Hart next Monday 18th at 7.30. Then you might be able to make a more educated comment?

Oh dear Old Cynic, you obviously haven't read the Application - if you had, you will see that there will be employment! Always best to get your facts right. I think you will find the employment will be for Lewes people - do you think Whitbread would do the same - honestly?!
