Councillor Joanna Carter "Frustrated" by LDC Decision on Skatehouse

15 March 2016


Councillor Joanna Carter has expressed her frustration that Conservative Councillors on Lewes District Council refused to use any of the £50,000 agreed for the relocation of North Street Quarter businesses to help to relocate the Skatehouse.

Jo said: “I find the Conservatives’ stance slightly frustrating as the council unanimously passed a motion for a £50,000 relocation fund for businesses on council land affected by the North Street Quarter. It’s hard to see why a relocation fund for commercial businesses should be approved but financial support for a community interest company such as Skatehouse cannot.

“Given that more than 3,000 people have asked for it to be saved, the council cannot fail to see what a valued place Skatehouse has become for young people in and around Lewes. We will keep pushing for a solution for Skatehouse and the other youth venues that will be displaced by the North Street development.”
