Lewes North Street Quarter update, January 2019

The North Street Quarter development has received confirmation from the planning authority that the pre-commencement planning conditions for phase 1 of the scheme have been met.

This is a big step forward in the scheme’s progress as work to prepare the ground for development can now begin.

The work to demolish some of the buildings in phase 1 – units 8-11 Phoenix Place – is due to start next week (week commencing 7 January 2019) and is expected to be completed at the end of February.
