JO BLOGS - TIME FOR ROUND TABLE TO PUT DOWN THE CRAYONS AND CRACK OPEN THE PIGGY BANK
December 3 2012
Jo Pettit, the organiser of recent residents meetings concerned with the sale of the Lewes Road Rec voices her concerns in the first of her blogs here at Haven News...
Last Tuesday, East Sussex County Council decided 'in principle' to the disposal of the 47 acre site known as 'Riverside Park' for the nominal sum of just £1 to Round Table Entertainments. 'Riverside Park' is the site next to the land recently sold by Lewes District Council for £84,000. In the name of regeneration, Round Table has been granted the potential to snap up yet another of our well used and well-loved open spaces for next to nothing. This is in the absence of any hard evidence that its £350 million water park proposal is anything more than a rather odd idea. It may appear that Newhaven is being sold down the river, in more ways than one.
