Why? Who? Someone must be to blame for the horrific way this town has been planned out...I definitely do not blame the people who actually live there.

Back in the 60s or early 70s, when the car was king, that ridiculous ring road was seen as the answer to Newhaven's traffic congestion problem.
Tbh, many towns fared worse in that era. Ever been to Croydon?

Damn shame. Newhaven's centre is shockingly dismal. What's Maria Cauliflower doing about it? Sweet FA

She is definitely in the running for the accolade Most Useless MP Ever.

I think the waterside in Newhaven will become its town centre. The old one will become redundant. It will take a few years but I think there is potential there. It's got all the potential plus a good population of honest hard working folk. If I was starting out I'd move there in a shot as lewes is now a non starter for young people trying to buy.

You are a troll, Belladonna, yes? Pray enlighten us how one MP is meant to have transformed a place like Newhaven in a year? When you have to admit you don't know, you could ask Mr Baker. He had 18 years to sort it out.

Economic development of Newhaven largely rests with East Sussex County Council where plans by Tory administration believed new ring road and encouraging more supermarkets would do the job. The new college is a great idea, though student numbers will not add much. What is needed is the modernisation of the port with a rail service that can deliver freight in addition to passengers.
Firms which could offer substantial employment are not attracted to an area with weak transport.
The abysmal delay of the report on the reopening of the Lewes Uckfield line ( which could extend, without passengers having to change trains at Lewes) would at least give the place a firm base for good development.
But all this rests with the county council.
On the other hand some proactive work by Maria Caulfield MP would do no harm

And re-opening the West Beach would work wonders for the town. I'm so sad my grandchildren can't enjoy what my daughter and I did.

I agree Newhaven is in a bad way, but it does have huge potential and a definite character.
Neither of these things could be said for Peacehaven next door.

I think getting trains running on the line that already goes through Newhaven should probably take priority over putting a new line in to Uckfield that would represent spending billions to improve the journey time on an already underused but perfectly adequate bus route by ten minutes.

At least our new MP has established her office in Newhaven, which is one more new small business than the town would otherwise have had.

As recollect, Norman Baker only harvested votes in Newhaven and showed his gratitude by achieving very little to improve the town over 18 years.,

Reinstating the Uckfield line is not just about that few miles. It gives another route to London and would ease congestion on the Brighton Mainline.

East Sussex County Council who runs Newhaven Should be responsible for the demise of Newhaven. Time to start using your votes and getting together as a town to boot them out

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
