Parks and Open Spaces
The Council is sole Trustee of the Town Brook Trust, which owns the Pells Recreation Ground and Pells Pool. We also own the lake and surrounding parkland in our own right. The swimming pool is managed on our behalf each year by the Pells Pool Community Association www.pellspool.org.uk , and between us we have several joint improvement projects in prospect – unfortunately delayed while the development of the nearby North Street Quarter is finalized.
We own the Love Lane tree belt; a part of the recreation ground at Malling; and various small public areas and assets. Under the umbrella title of “open spaces” we also include public realm amenities like our 130 bench seats; 50 litter bins; 14 bus shelters and the CCTV cameras in Lewes which form part of Sussex Police’s county-wide network.
