Lewes Chamber of Commerce started this petition to South Downs National Park Authority

The proposal to demolish the Bus Station and redevelop the site will have a detrimental effect to Lewes. It will mean increased traffic, fewer shoppers, and add to the pollution that the Councils are trying to cut back on.

The Bus Station allows people to wait, change, board and leave buses easily and safely. Demolishing it will also lead to our narrow pavements becoming more crowded, with the increased numbers of people waiting at bus stops.

Brighton and Hove Buses have told Lewes Chamber that the loss of the bus station would mean fewer buses in the area, as there is not enough space outside Waitrose for the current regularity.

We request that the South Downs National Park Authority ensures it implements the requirement in Local Plan Policy SD57:

“Alternative uses of the bus station site are subject to the facility being replaced by an operationally satisfactory and accessible site elsewhere within Lewes Town Centre”.

We also request that Lewes Chamber of Commerce and other local organisations are involved in the planning of the new bus interchange.
