St Annes SchoolEver since this Georgian building closed as a school standing in its magnificent grounds this landscape jewel in Lewes’ crown has been an obvious target for development. The Land Trust supported the recent move to modify the Conservation Area boundary to include the school grounds. Despite opposition from the site’s owner, East Sussex County Council, the South Down National Park Authority approved the change unanimously. This gives a degree of protection to the site, making inappropriate development less likely.

However the Land Trust believes that this site represents a magnificent opportunity for community ownership with a development that would respect the value of the grounds while it also would provide much-needed affordable housing.

If you agree with this aim, please join us in our efforts to preserve this important site for Lewes.
