Summary of Project
The Springman House site in Lewes East Sussex was previously owned by the NHS and the South East Coast Ambulance Service. Following the purchase of the site in 2017 by Lewes District Council, plans are ongoing to relocate the fire station from its existing site at the North Street Quarter to a new 'blue light' hub at Springman. This will unlock an area that can then be developed for housing as part of the wider North Street Quarter regeneration scheme.
