Councillors have rejected proposals to convert a disused court site into a 60-bed hotel.

The South Downs Planning Committee this afternoon rejected plans to convert the Lewes Magistrates’ Court into a Premier Inn hotel and shop fronts.

The authority’s committee agreed unanimously that the design of the building was not in keeping with the character of the town.

The building itself is already out of character with most of Lewes so it's hard to see how a developer could succeed in making it fit in without demolishing it! Odd how it was OK when it was a publically owned building but now for private use it doesn't fit in....
