The North Street Quarter will be a vibrant, mixed use neighbourhood which will regenerate the area around North Street and the Phoenix Industrial Estate and reconnect it to the heart of Lewes. Located just a five-minute walk from Lewes High Street, the new North Street Quarter will reflect the character of the historic market town and provide a range of amenities for the benefit of all Lewes residents.
Plans for the North Street Quarter have been drawn up in accordance with local planning policy, which requires development on the site to be sustainable and sympathetic to its location on the banks of the River Ouse and adjacent to the South Downs National Park. It must also deliver high levels of affordable housing, provide vital flood defences, create a riverside walkway, create flexible employment space, provide additional off street parking and a healthcare hub serving 26,000 patients.
The North Street Quarter will revitalise this brownfield site, creating a smart new gateway into town. The new riverside walk and footbridge along with new through routes will improve access to the area and reconnect it to the town’s social and cultural hub, the historic High Street. As well as creating several new attractive public spaces and gardens, the project will also fund improvements to existing play spaces at Pells Park and Malling Recreation Ground.
