Lewes Neighbourhood Plan

The Friends of Lewes Society has been playing its part in the drafting of a Neighbourhood Plan for Lewes.

Producing such plans is a Government requirement and the Lewes one will essentially complement the Joint Core Strategy recently adopted by Lewes District Council and the South Downs National Park Authority, by providing specific locations for new housing development and other planning detail.

At present a search is taking place to find locations for the 220 houses that the Neighbourhood Plan is expected to provide in the period to 2030. The Society will publish its comments on these proposals and other aspects of the draft Neighbourhood Plan prior to a consultation to take place on a draft in January 2017.
