Chance to have your say on future of Phoenix site in Lewes


The company behind the North Street Quarter development has invited Lewes residents and visitors to come and have their say on the future of the site at two public workshops.

Santon, the landowner of the Phoenix industrial Estate, is holding informal drop-in sesions as part of its public consultation. The public can comment on the future of the site.

The first takes place on January 19 at Lewes Town Hall (9am-3pm) and is repeated on January 29 at Southover Grange (3-8pm).

Clive Wilding, Director at Santon, said: “It will be a great opportunity to meet the designers and developers behind the site, understand the current state of play, and share your views on land use, design, and your priorities for the site and the town.”

Cllr James Page, Leader of Lewes District Council, said: “This workshop is a great opportunity to drop in and learn about the potential of this site.

“We are glad that Santon are showing their commitment to consultation by asking independent facilitation organisation Demsoc to collate and publish public opinion.

“We know that the developers are keen to use public feedback to inform their development options which will be presented in early summer, and we would encourage everyone with an interest in the town or the site to take part”.

Further information will be available on the project website when it goes live on January 19.
