Heard that it's a yes to Falmer. Thank God common sense has prevailed. Let's hope the incompetent District Council stop wasting our money with vindictive, pathetic appeals, and let's get the thing built. A day to celebrate in Brighton and Lewes.

Rather see the cash go towards re-vamping the pells area myself.

Saving the countryside from development is not a waste of money.

It's a ploughed field that would have been built on by the Uni if BHA had applied for it....a totally scandalous waste of tax payers cash that could've been used for much needier projects and something that all Lewes residents (i don't class Falmer residents as Lewes residents) can appreciate.
The whole of England was "countryside" before we built on it....things change. Learn to live with change and move on.

So where do you live then Deflated football...a nice brick built house i would guess that was built on something that was once known as "countryside". If you're so concerenrd about the countryside, why don't you go and live in a tent for the rest of your life.
Amaizing where all these hypocrites and NIMBY's come from

Oh dear, we've got to the stage when anybody who disagrees with the development is called a hypocrite because they have the audacity to live in a house!!!

In a house built in the very countryside that Deflated ego...sorry football, is whining about.
Make your mind up....you either want buildings or countryside. You can of course have a mix of both providing you don't mind the occasional ploughed field being built on in a similar way that the occasional deralict building site is turned back into countryside

Andy..you must have a very simple brain if you think that the issue is as black and white as buildings or countryside...it's not worth discussing the issue with a plonker like yourself.
Have a good afternoon

When will Lewes residents see this for the silver lined cloud it is? Brighton is 3 train stations away, Lewes is 1. Many footballing families will probably prefer to stay in sleepy Lewes than rowdy Lewes and only be one stop away on the train.
Hotelliers and Lewes Tourist Board should make the most of this excellent opportunity to really put Lewes on the map for good things within the footballing community. Visiting fans could prove a very nice money spinner for Lewes.

Can i just say that all you residents of Lewes should make sure your council tax money is spent more wisely, and hope that no more of it is wasted on appealing again, i'm sure there are much more needy causes in your lovely town.
A big thanks to all those that supported our cause for a new stadium.

For God's sake. Get over it.
What you rather have there? A stadium that's in use for a few hours about 30 times a year, or a hypermarket in use 24/7 with all its artics?

I Call for all Falmer & Lewes Residents to put this terrible decision behind them. Its time to move on, so lets all join together and welcome Brighton & Hove Albion into our community, after all we are going to be neighbours very soon and i for one think it will be better to work together than to be rivals. The better team won fair and square. This whole sorry saga has gone on far to long, so come lets be friends !

Yes - good result for all of us Lewes residents.
Now, can our council tax please be spent on Flood defences rather than having it wasted on this ridiculous campaign against the people of Brighton.
On 24 Jul 2007 at 2:16pm ExiledfromLewes wrote:
You want your council tax spent on flood defences? What council services would you want to be cut to afford that. Flood defences are the responsibility of DEFRA and central Government, which is already subsidised by the tax payer through income tax and national insurance. Seven years after the floods I certainly wouldn't want another form of taxation used to fill the funding gap, when as a taxpayer we have subsidised DEFRA over the past seven years to enact the changes that are needed.

Well that's a pretty feeble response. Having to revert to personal insults has just lost you any pathetic arguement you ever had.
And i'm already having a good afternoon thanks. I will crack open a beer when i get home and toast a wonderful descision for common sense

When the whole of England was countryside, there was no such thing as football ? consequently this is an invalid argument.

We all have the right to voice our own opinions on this site. If you agree all well and good if you don't agree well thats ok too just let each have there say don't slag people off just because they don't agree with you

How is that a invaild argument Spotty Dog?
All Andy stated was that progress goes on, and indeed he is correct that untill it was built on there was nothing here in the southeast but fields.
The simple fact is that where the stadium is being built is nothing more that a field. There is nothing beautiful about it and its next door to main road and a university.
The Issue should now be put to rest. the stadium is on its way. Brighton and Hove albion have 5.2 million to start building with....And I for one am glad.
Fields are 10 a penny, and its not like its a flood plane.

Not sure you can call Spurs a big team, however don't knock the plastics you be reliant on them to fill your stadium for as long as possible once it's built.

John get your facts write. LDC will have its costs refunded. They are not responsible for flood defences. LOcal councils will be paying for the Cliffe defences. Reseach local government before being crass.
