UPDATE ON PHOENIX ESTATE....
Firstly a huge thanks for all that came to present the petition, over 200 people gave their time and voice. The petition has been a great success on many levels, directly due to your participation we were able to:
1. Bring this issue to the local people with extensive local press.
2. Meet with the council to discuss this issue and receive unexpected praise and support for sustaining the businesses and community spaces within Lewes or regionally.
3.Change the Core strategy to state that the residents and people who use the estate must be consulted over development plans.
Obviously this does not mean that the estate will not be demolished or that our wishes will be listened to, however we are in discussion with the developer who has said he is open to working with us to find bridging solutions.
Tomorrow and 29th Jan, Santon, the developer, will be holding public meetings, please go if you can to one...for more info visit: www.lewesclt.org
