Climate Change: Sustainable Development and Living

Recording of our Sustainable Development and Living Webinar from 8th December 2021

The redevelopment of the 15-acre brownfield site of North Street Lewes, in the South Downs National Park is one of the most significant brownfield developments in the South Downs National Park. Over the past year, Human Nature, a Lewes-based company, has been working on plans for a new ‘walkable, renewably-powered, super-green neighbourhood on the former Phoenix industrial site’.

One thought on “Watch the Sustainable Development and Living Webinar

  1. A very useful conspectus of the project and the thinking behind it.

    It would be interesting to hear more about what impact assessment on Lewes is being carried out more broadly i.e. impact on existing services and infrastructure. Evidence-based arguments will be needed through the planning process to demonstrate positive impacts beyond the site itself.
