Here's a thing. Lewes FC owed Philcox about £200k in loans. If Philcox's creditors want their cash, have they got a right of recall against the club?

avenue girl - Development is Rees Elliott. Philcox were just their associated building company. What is interesting is that the hoardings were tidied up and repainted within the last two weeks. My hunch would be that we must getting fairly close to the three-year expiry on the planning approval; hence Rees Elliott will be going for a renewal. The thing is that unless there's been a substantive and formal change of LDC policy they cannot reasonably refuse the renewal. What the Philcox problem does tend to suggest is that the company generally is skint, so I can't imagine that there'll be an immediate go-ahead. The alternate view is that they're now more likely to sell some of their approved development sites on to get cashflow sorted. Say what you like about RE but they do spend money on their developments. If it gets sold on to a more cheapskate developer the results could be horrific.

ah - yes i saw them painting the hoardings - apparently because the gate lock had been broken and they didn't want to give the impression the site wasn't derlict and encourage vandalism. I know some of the local residnets are dead set against the development so anything that could hinder it would be welcome news for them.

As long as work has begun on the development within three years, which it has, the planning will remain valid and no resubmission is needed.

NPP. Think you're wrong there. There have been all sorts of test cases where developers have tried to chuck a bag of concrete in the ground and called it a foundation, so as to say they've started, but it has to be meaningful construction progress not just a bit of site clearance.

Demolition of existing house and site excavation is a little more than chucking a bag of concrete on the ground.

NPP. What has been taken away has no bearing. For the development to have commenced, building work has to have commenced.

D & O: I am positive that if you enquire with LDC they will confirm that the development has commenced, because it clearly has. Let me know if you discover otherwise (which you will not).

NPP - I don't doubt that what you say is correct. However I'm also aware of instances where the LA has taken a different view. I've a meeting with a planning lawyer in a couple of weeks and if I get the chance I'll mention it.

It is a pity that this firm went bust, but not surprising. Much of their business was through Rees Elliott and that dried up. Philcox were always bad payers and no doubt was run with little cash in the bank.
I think Rees Elliott was one of the better Lewes developers, but getting involved with the football club, coming across as a flash git and not paying people was a bad combination of decisions.

Elliott and Style - this is another example of a recession working toward the survival of the fittest. And we've all known for a long while that Style is particularly unfit. I'm wondering what words of comfort Lindsay Frost is giving both of them.
