Public consultation ends Thurs 14th May 10am – major agro-industrial site near Lewes

Just over a week ago we posted information about a major new development in the Ouse valley south of Lewes headed:  National Park – permission likely for heavy lorries to use the C7 road between Lewes and Newhaven . It is good to know that so many people wrote in about their concerns on heavy traffic, the impact on the landscape in the National Park and on the commercialisation/industrialisation of redundant farm buildings as well as other topics.

Local people are up against it, as the planning officers have recommended approval. Perhaps they don’t understand the area as they are based in Midhurst – some 45 miles away!

Public consultation on this proposal ends tomorrow Thurs at 10am . You can  send in a final 500 word comment  by emailing –  public.speaking@southdowns.gov.uk no later than 10am on 14 May 2020. More information on this closing stage is on the South downs National Park web site: click HERE

The existing development given permission in 2012 (2,184 sq metres ) with the older buildings in the background. If the new permission goes through another 4,533 sq metres will be added to the site.
