In the next few weeks the National Park will close its letter box to views by the public to the industrial estate. I would like to encourage members of bonfire societies to take this oppotunity to write to the National Park to express any concerns they may have about the imapct the many developments, including the 49 sites, in and around Lewes may be about to have on bonfire, whether it be the lack of support from new people to loss of bonfire sites/sheds or even the feeling of the whole thing being pushed further and further out of the town. This is an issue that has not arisen before, and they need to know that societies have a stake in this town under "communities". It is also perhaps time to think about UNESCO status for bonfire so that developments have to take it inot account. One for BONCO.

For those that are interested, think about the future of your fire sites. If it concerns you, take this chance to tell the National Park why it's all important to you.

They're not building over green space; they're re-developing a brownfield eyesore.
I don't like your desperate attempts to rouse support for the folk who have been lucky enough to benefit from unrealistically low rents since the financial misfortune of the previous landlord.
I notice that the crusty-vans are spreading to Jirah and Pelham Terrace. Nice. I wonder where they go to the toilet?

For those of you who are involved in bonfire and understand the fragility possibly imposed on our tradition by the planned 49 sites, and those of you who understand fallout zones, please let the National Park know that your tradition may be affetced by the proposed sites.
To the rest of you, stop concentrating on your petty dislikes.

I don't think its an eyesore at all. In fact I think its more attractive than some of the recent developments around the town, like the HQ gallery and neighbouring houses and the terrace up on Western road (who approved those bricks?)

This isn't about planning as much as bonfire and the affects of planning on the tradition.

I'm grateful for Nevillman starting this discussion and being so generous as to refer back to me. My delay in saying anything... more
