Demolition of empty buildings on North Street is to begin this week.
The site is located in the part of North Street Quarter that is scheduled to be developed in phases 2 & 3. However, the buildings – units 20-24 – are in a poor state of repair and have been targeted by trespassers so Lewes District Council has taken the decision to remove the units ahead of the main demolition works.
The contractors will be ensuring the site is secure before carefully dismantling the buildings with as little disruption to neighbours as possible. The work is likely to take until mid-June and when completed the site will be made safe and secure.
