Get ready for the second Battle of Lewes, Lewesians, as developers now have plans for the old racing stables and Battle of Lewes site. Houses right up on the South Downs Way, visible from everywhere

Houses, houses, houses... no need to build over the countryside, just tax the foreign owners of empty London flats out of the game and there you have it

we need more homes built and they need to be built some where. The only reason you are complaining is that they are near your house. Its always the same with lewes, fix the problem just don't do it any where near my house or any where i might have to see it. Another example of stuck up Lewes.

Ask yourself why we 'need more homes' ? you cannot be so stupid as to think we should just build houses everywhere including the south downs, an area of breathtaking beauty, that has inspired wonderful painters, poets and writers and walkers and is completely unique in the world.
The ONS predicts UK population to rise to 80 million because people like you can't understand whats at stake.

I am somewhat confused! I am sure there was a post yesterday under this thread that referred to the South Downs National Park allowing controversial developments in Lewes - why has this been taken down?! It is completely true - Massive mistake for the town to go into the Park - having sat at some of the planning meetings in Midhurst and listened to the planning panel say things like "well, it is good enough for Lewes" is surely enough to make us concerned for our lovely old town - Please could someone explain why posts are not allowed to be critical of the SDNPA, especially as our future is in their somewhat dubious hands!

I can see the stables being converted into housing, though it's so far from anywhere you can only live there with a car, so we'll have to see what additional infrastructure is put in place to cater for that. There's no way Lewes can handle more cars going down narrow roads to the station or shops.
Landport Bottom will never be built on though.
