LDC Planning Committee Update

This planning application went before Lewes Planning Committee on December 8th 2021. Despite the Planning Officer’s Report recommending approval the application was refused by the committee by six votes to three. 

This is an important early victory for our campaign. If the application had been successful it would have set a dangerous precedent for future applications. 


Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign. You have made your voices heard and made a difference!


These are some of the positive actions take by RAGE supporters which have led to this success:

  • Submitted objections to the application on the Lewes Planning Portal
  • Writing letters to the Sussex Express and other media outlets (press page here). 
  • Attending the Planning meeting on December 8th as a member of the general public
  • Emailing parish & district councillors and local MP Maria Caulfield.

These actions were extremely effective in conveying the strength of local feeling against the proposed development.
