CROSS STONE APPLICATION WITHDRAWN
March 16 2012.
Newhaven Town Council has been told today that the developer Cross Stone has decided to withdraw its food store related planning applications for The Drove/Railway Road.
The Mayor of Newhaven, Councillor Steve Saunders said " This is disappointing news for Newhaven as the proposals from Cross Stone, if delivered, would have offered real employment and community benefits to the town. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Cross Stone for taking the time and trouble to come along to our Big Planning Event on Wednesday to engage with the public and hear their views."
The Big Planning Event was a huge success and attracted over a thousand visitors. Town Council staff are now busy collating all the feedback received from members of the public, and this is likely take at least a couple of weeks. Once collated, the information will be passed to the District Council so that it can be taken into account when considering the remaining two supermarket applications and future developments for the town.
