Canon O’Donnell Community Hall update Dec 2012
Thursday, 20 December 2012 15:53

Canon O'DonnellThe threat of demolition of this charismatic Arts & Crafts building at the western end of the town has temporarily receded. Love it or not, most Lewesians recognise that this iconic landmark should only ever be replaced by a building of significantly greater merit.

When the Hall’s owner appealed against the recent refusal to allow demolition, the Land Trust worked hard, along with other community groups that included the Friends of Lewes and the Lewes Conservation Area Advisory Group, to persuade the inspector to uphold the refusal.

We now learn that the owner plans to submit a fresh proposal to develop the site, putting the Hall, once again, in jeopardy.

We await the new proposals with interest. In the meantime we are pleased to learn that our District Council has instructed the owner to take remedial action to stop the Hall falling into decay.
