Seaford Says No to a Large Luxury Care Home on the South Downs

Residents were dismayed to learn that despite Lewes District Council officers turning down their plan to build a 60 bed care home abutting the South Downs National Park a few months ago, a Government appointed inspector will now get to decide if this goes through.

Frontier Estates has gone to appeal and there will be a hearing with a Planning Inspector later in the Year.

The council has explained that this huge development would be an unsympathetic feature between the edge of Seaford and the National Park, detracting from the quality of a protected landscape for both Seaford residents and visitors alike. They are also dissatisfied with the information on how surface water would be managed, given a potential for flooding.

Lib Dem Cllr Christine Brett has campaigned against the initial proposal, and is asking for your support to show the inspector that this is the wrong application for this important site.

Cllr Christine Brett said, "Residents have told me they would not be objecting if this was the small housing development offered as a site to Seaford Neighbourhood plan and the recent LDC call for sites but this building will overshadow their homes, cause light pollution to the dark skies of the edge of the Downs, increase the traffic and cause a parking problem, changing the character of the area. They are especially concerned about flooding as whenever it rains heavily a stream of water already runs down the centre of Southdown Road".
