Lewes Bus station may be demolished!

Just at a time when we need to encourage more people to choose sustainable forms of transport there are proposals for the bus station in Lewes at the eastern end of the National Park to be demolished with no firm replacement. Lewes has long been the hub for bus transport for the surrounding villages as well as for connections further afield to Uckfield, Tunbridge Wells, Haywards Heath and Brighton.

The Generator Group, and the site owners are proposing to demolish Lewes bus station and replace it with 40 dwellings along with commercial space for offices or shops. Sadly, currently they propose no affordable homes nor do they appear to offer to fund a new bus station.

One thought on “Lewes Bus station may be demolished!

  1. What a great shame that the central bus station is not valued. It should be open busy and thriving, offering facilities and information to the community.
