North Street Quarter is a large development site in the heart of Lewes, East Sussex, near to the High Street. The strategy is to deliver a vibrant, mixed-use neighbourhood that will regenerate the area around North Street, including the Phoenix Industrial Estate. This is the largest brownfield site in the South Downs National Park.
Planning permission was granted in December 2015 for a mixed-use scheme. The 15 acre (6,07 ha) development plan has been created in partnership with Lewes District Council, delivering 416 new homes (40% affordable) and 13,000 sqm of commercial space, accommodating c475 full time jobs including workshops; retail space; a health centre; 6 500 sqm of industrial space on the separate Malling Brooks site; new riverside walkway and public square; foot and cycle bridge; and car park.
The final agreements with the planning and local government authorities subsequent to the granting of planning consent are currently being completed with the intention of undertaking a phased roll-out of the disposal strategy for the scheme commencing 2017 through to 2019.
