Does anyone know what's happening with this development? It's all gone a bit quiet.....

All the permissions, section 106 agreements etc are in place, and I believe demolition work will start in September.

The north street artists in phase 1 have nearly all gone and the skate house is closing down at the end of July. I believe the soap factory's new premises is well underway. Once they are all out then demolition should start shortly. That's what I heard anyway.

UK population to grow by 25% in next thirty years. Lewes town's share of that equals 4,000 people. North street quarter might house 1,000. So just need to find sites for three more similar size developments in the town. Then we can reap all the benefits that a booming population bring.

Only the out voting areas should take the expansion. London, Brighton and Lewes should remain as they are.

Some of us voted IN because we want to see the growth in the economy that is characterised by more building projects and the associated new development that brings prosperity to communities like Lewes.

Why don't all the whingeing Remainers move out of Lewes- then we would not need to build any further housing in the town.

An investor I know has already received a really good buy to let proposal on a pair of the new houses to be built and I'm looking forward to seeing what else happens. They're much more modest houses than the units that regenerated the land between South St and the river, and they'll be easily let I think.

Out Sanctum, the 25% population growth you're referring to was based on remaining in, so by your own logic it's the places that voted IN that should bear the brunt of the extra housing, not the places that voted out.

I can't believe many people protesting ever ventured into the North Street Quarter as it currently is, as I'm sure if they had many more people would have welcomed Santon with open arms. Put it this way, you wouldn't walk through there at night - don't! Having blindly signed a petition months and months ago I subsequently wandered down there with my husband and I was genuinely shocked at what a dump it is. The sooner they get on and start transforming the place the better. It's a scar on our beautiful town. I'm sorry, but it is. KR

Demolition will continue until the next recession kicks in early next year. At which point the developer will collapse, work will stop, and we'll be left with an eyesore to end all eyesores.

Trouble is, Englishman, that if all the Remain voters (the majority of them graduates working in education, the professions, arts etc) moved out along with their money, the town would quickly spiral down economically, socially and culturally. Is that what you want?
