New developer set to take control of North Street Quarter scheme in Lewes

After an open market competition, a landmark moment has been reached at which developer Human Nature has agreed terms to buy the North Street site in Lewes.

One of the founders of Human Nature, Joanna Yarrow, until recently Global Head of Sustainable and Healthy Living at IKEA in Sweden, was brought up in Lewes where her grandfather, Reg Yarrow, was Mayor on several occasions.

Local involvement in the Phoenix project goes even further as much of the funding to acquire the site has come from private local investors.
