Developers will publish plans to transform an industrial estate – despite hundreds of locals objecting.
Santon, the landowners of the Phoenix industrial Estate in Lewes, wants to regenerate the North Street Quarter.
As part of their public consultation the firm is holding three informal drop-in workshops so that the public can comment on the future of the site.
The first workshop takes place on Saturday, January 19 in Lewes Town Hall from 9am to 3pm.
Clive Wilding, director at Santon, said: “It will be a great opportunity to meet the designers and developers behind the site, understand the current state of play, and share your views on land use, design, and your priorities for the site and the town.”
In its core strategy, Lewes District Council has highlighted the area, which houses a collection of old warehouses used by the community, for redevelopment It wants to see the area provide 350 homes, up to 5,000 sq m of office space, retail space, a hotel with the Waitrose supermarket either redeveloped or relocated.
A petition of more than 1,500 opposing its inclusion was presented to the local authority last year.
