About Us

The town of Lewes has two designated Conservation Areas (CAs). One is based on the town centre and contains many fine examples of the best English architecture over the last 1000 years. The other is based in the Lewes suburb of South Malling with much important archaeology.

Lewes castle Barbican gate Lewes CAAG came into being in 2009 as a result of an initiative of Cllr Peter Gardiner, Lead Planner of Lewes District Council, and also has support from Lewes Town Council, although it must be emphasised that we are completely independent of both organisations.

The job of the Lewes CAAG is to help conserve and protect the streets and buildings in the two CAs; to advise the Local Authority and developers on relevant planning issues; to act as a watch dog – looking out for problems as they emerge, rather than waiting for them to become obvious; also to seek out opportunities to actually improve the CA - by, for example, persuading the Utility Companies to bury their cables underground rather than draping them across the townscape. Watch, as they say, this space.
