Save the trees in green corridor at entrance to Lewes

20th April 2023

You can sign a petition to oppose the wholesale cutting down of the trees in the green corridor at the entrance into Lewes.


The company Human Nature has submitted a planning application to develop the Phoenix industrial estate in Lewes.

The developer is planning to cut down most of the trees on the industrial estate and all the trees along the Phoenix Causeway (on the left hand side as you walk from the town towards the bridge).

These mature trees offer homes and food for wildlife (birds, insects, small mammals), provide oxygenation to an area of heavy traffic and are a valuable amenity for Lewes. They are not replaceable by new planting/landscaping the developer is proposing.
