Representations to the Lewes Core Strategy Consultation
Thursday, 01 December 2011 00:00

Lewes Community Land Trust submitted comments on Lewes District Council’s draft Core Strategies document based on the information from the Phoenix Survey. This sounds very dry and technical – and it is. But, the Council’s Local Development Framework will form the basis of the next Local Plan – and we have to make sure they get it right. The Trust’s contribution suggests amendments to the Council’s draft that would bring the section on North Street/Phoenix into line with the results of our Phoenix Survey. Back in the summer of 2010 we submitted a similar document, but it was almost entirely ignored. Our submission this year tries to address that.

Councillor John StockdaleJohn Stockdale, Chairman of Lewes Community Land Trust, Secretary of the Pells Pool Community Association, former Chair of Lewes Flood Action and campaigner for National Park status for Lewes was elected to Lewes Town Council in a by-election for Lewes Bridge ward on Thursday July 22nd 2010.

Phoenix Survey Report, Summer 2010

Phoenix RisingPrepared by Alix Audley for the Lewes Community Land Trust, June 2010

The future of the Phoenix site has been a controversial issue for the past 5-6 years, with the plans of the previous developer having both fervent supporters and strong critics.

The local Council did conduct a 'visioning' process in 2006 but this was never completed. The impetus for this survey was the collapse of the previous bid, when the Lewes Community Land Trust took the opportunity to take the townspeoples' views into account for any future development, in a sense taking on and updating from where the Council had left off.

New Web Site Launched, Summer 2010
Monday, 05 July 2010 12:15

Lewes Community Land TrustThe new Lewes Community Land Trust web site, now over two years old, was launched on Friday 9th July 2010. The web site is powered by Joomla! 1.5, an Open-Source Content Management System (CMS) released under the GNU GPL License, and runs under Apache on a Linux-based web server at WebHosting UK's data centre in Maidenhead. Joomla! is written in PHP and utilises the MySQL relational database. The site was developed for the Lewes Community Land Trust by John Marsh on a voluntary basis during the summer of 2010. In order to support the Trust's requirements, in addition to the CMS framework provided by Joomla!, several significant add-ons were used to provide a subscription payment and donation mechanism, to handle newsletter mailings, to provide a discussion forum and, behind the scenes, to back up the site's database.

Phoenix Survey, Spring 2010
Monday, 07 June 2010 07:49

At an Open Space event in November, we asked the Lewes community to come up with ideas for the Phoenix and a leaflet summarising the options proposed is being distributed around the Town. Please make sure you have your say by completing the survey form and returning it to us through one of the ballot boxes placed in local shops throughout the Town.

There will be an exhibition in the lobby of the Town Hall 19-23 April 10am - 5pm daily. This will give you a chance to ask questions and explain your ideas to someone at the exhibition.
