Neighbourhood Plan - Your Comments Needed

  The Lewes Neighbourhood Plan is up for final comments from the public. Transition Town Lewes drafted the policies in the Plan on Ecosystem Services, the Environment, Sustainability, Local Green Spaces and a new vision for the River Ouse. The Plan also contains important policies on Housing, including at least 220 new homes in Lewes, and a policy unique to Lewes on Low Cost Housing. Once adopted, these policies will be used to determine planning applications in Lewes, along with the South Downs Local Plan.

Please do take the time to review the final draft Plan. Expressing your support for the environmental policies will help enormously!. All representations received from this consultation will be forwarded to an independent Examiner appointed to consider the Plan and allow it to progress to the next stage on its journey, which is a referendum of the citizens of Lewes. You have until 23 July 2018 to do this. The full Plan can be found at together with details on how to respond.
