Lewes Phoenix Rising welcomes Human Nature’s acquisition of North Street

Lewes Phoenix Rising (LPR) is very pleased to hear the news that a buyer for the former North Street industrial estate in Lewes has come forward to take on development of the whole site.
We are confident that the development will now proceed, supported by a developer, Human Nature, that has a commitment to sustainable development and to generating benefits for our town and
wider district. We know that Human Nature has strong links with Lewes and understands the unique characteristics of our town.
After eight years of campaigning for the right development on North Street, we look forward to engaging with Human Nature and other stakeholders in Lewes to identify how this site can help to meet Lewes’ needs at a time of climate crisis and huge economic challenge.
We will work to ensure that proposals for the site meet Lewes’ expectation for a genuinely sustainable development, with a wide range of homes, jobs and services for our town, including genuinely affordable housing and workspace.
