Planning Applications in Sussex Express

It seems that since the town has been in the National Park the local planning applications advertised in the paper have got less in number, less detailed and less easy to understand. As I remember it used to be split into 3 parts : tree cutting, buildings inside conservation areas & those not. Now there's just one small section that is in small print & harder to follow what is being requeted.
So, whare are the other applications? Can't believe the recession has stopped all other works.

No, it hasn't.
If you are really interested you can register with Lewes District Council planners and get sent the full list of new District planning applications by email each Tuesday.

There is a new system in place since we were taken into the national park and yes it is much harder to get the information you need. We find it difficult as councillors on the town planning committee, so not surprised if the Sussex Express has similar.

Lewes District Council are still handling many, if not all the applications on behalf of the SDNP. That is why we are yet to see an improvement! When a Councillor is complaining that it is difficult to get information, then it is obviously not good enough, so I suggest you (both) contact SDNP and ask them how they are fulfilling a legal obiigation to ensure that we all, as consultees with an interest in our own town/s and villages, can be notified of what affects us.
