Sports building and 70 homes proposed for Ringmer

A sports and community building, tennis courts and up to 70 homes could be built in Ringmer if an outline planning application is successful.

Developer Croudace Homes has applied to Lewes District Council for planning permission to go ahead with the development at Broyle Gate Farm in Lewes Road.

The proposal will including affordable housing, a synthetic turf playing pitch, open space, access for vehicles, parking and landscaping.

The sports facilities would be run by a not for profit company with experience in running leisure centres.

It will be open to the public and Ringmer Community College.

Originally the scheme was to include up to 90 homes but this has been reduced to 70 to reflect the rural nature of the village.
