Current and recent projects

Current projects

We are working with partners Cycle Lewes , Dr Bike, Lewes Living Streets and Cycle Shack to create an updated Lewes cycle map. It has been a priority for a while to print up an updated version of the map; which has gone through two previous editions, to identify safe routes through the town and the location of cycle racks. This should improve people’s experiences getting about on two wheels around Lewes. The map will also include some ideas for trips to the countryside from the town. Big thanks to Lewes Town Council for their financial support towards this.

Working with the Lewes Area Access Group and local businesses it is aimed to create a project to improve access for disabled people, whether visitors or locals, in the town. This was a topic at the AGM in 2016 and remains a priority for 2017.

Following the success of the first Lewes Fossil Fest it is planned to hold a second one, date is 17th September 2017. More details to follow.

Networking events are held from time to time. The recent Spring one is written up below.

The Lewes Town Partnership is concerned to work with the Neighbourhood Plan process to see how the town’s future is planned. Working with partners we will be following proposals for the North Street (formerly known as the Phoenix) Quarter . The Directors want to ensure that any community benefit that might come to the town reflect the wishes and needs of the partnership’s members and communities in the town.
