Lewes Local Plan Part 2 – Schedule of Modifications Consultation

The Planning Policy Team at Lewes District Council is pleased to advise that the Inspector has now considered all written and verbal representations made during the Examination in Public of the Lewes Local Plan Part 2 and recommended that the Council publish a Schedule of Main Modifications for public consultation.

Local Plan Part 2 only applies to the area of the district outside the South Downs National Park.

We are therefore inviting comments on the Schedule and accompanying Addendum to the Sustainability Appraisal which assesses the proposed modifications.   This is a focussed consultation on the Main Modifications put forward by the Inspector; comments should therefore concentrate on these points.   Comments are invited over a 6 week period from 8 July to midnight on 19 August 2019.

The easiest way to submit comments is via our website, where you can comment on each Main Modification separately.   The two consultation documents can also be found and downloaded on the same webpage:


Residents invited to have their say on waste service

Lewes District Council is inviting residents to have their say on waste and recycling in the area.

The online survey aims to find out how satisfied residents were with the service they received over the last 12 months.

The questionnaire only takes a few minutes to complete and will help the council to understand if the service could be improved in the future.

Although anonymous, there is an opportunity to join the council’s mailing list.

Councillor Isabelle Linington, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We want to make the service the best it can be. We’re always looking for ways to improve and hope this survey will help us.”

The survey will be online until 5pm on Friday 28 June and can be found here
