Securing planning in the South Downs National Park

Within the last five years ECE have presented proposals and achieved planning permission for a range of projects in the residential and commercial sectors within the South Downs National Park. The approved projects all have a positive effect on the National Park, providing much-needed housing and commercial space for local businesses to thrive.

The South Downs National Park covers 1,600km2 from East to West Sussex. Our approved projects are spread across the park, covering the picturesque villages of Pulborough, Amberley and Liss to name a few.

Projects include:

Wiston Winery, North Farm – ECE’s proposals will expand the winery’s current storage space, restore agricultural barns and create new spaces for holiday lets and commercial use.

Andlers Ash, Liss – Planning permission was achieved for a bespoke residential development comprising of 77 homes, which addressed the areas’ need for affordable housing.

Southdowns Road, Lewes – ECE were commissioned to produce a design solution for a scheme of 80 new homes in Southdowns Road, Lewes. The scheme received approval for the residential development and new commercial space.

The Old Brewery, Lewes – ECE successfully rejuvenated a derelict Grade II listed building in the heart of Lewes to provide new homes and commercial space. The scheme enhanced he surroundings of the listed building and was designed to respect the setting of the National Park.

Brooks Road, Lewes – This proposal breathes new life into a redundant industrial site to provide 41 new homes and 13 business spaces in Lewes.

Strawberry Villas, Amberley – Permission was granted for a development of 14 new homes comprising one to four bedrooms. The scheme takes influence from the local design and material context, taking cues from Amberley’s built heritage.
