Our proposals are for around 100 new homes, in a range of sizes and styles to help people move onto, and up the housing ladder, and for older people to downsize. The development also includes 40% affordable homes.


The Government requires Lewes District Council to deliver a quantum of new homes per year across the district to meet local needs; however, in recent years Lewes has not been meeting its requirements. The emerging proposals for new homes in Ringmer are responding to the housing need in Lewes District.


We consulted on our plans from 20 October to 16 November 2023. We are now revewing your feedback ahead of submitting a planning application. While our formal feedback period has ended, if you have any comments relevant to our project team – contact us below.

Sustainable homes, strong communities

We deliver sustainable, infrastructure-led communities and is an industry leader on biodiversity and the environment.


We ensure our landscape-led development proposals integrate well with the local setting and have a benefit for local wildlife. We ensure that existing trees and hedgerows are retained wherever possible and plant new trees and shrubs in new green spaces.

New bird and bat boxes are provided on homes and trees to ensure an environmentally friendly development providing a Biodiversity Net Gain of at least 10% across the site.

We will protect and enhance the wildlife corridor to the south of the site and provide links to existing rights of way.

We are also proposing a new play area for local children to enjoy.


More on sustainability


Creating communities is what we do. We build integrated communities that challenge issues of loneliness and promote healthy living in enhanced natural environments.

Working with our partners, we create award winning sustainable, infrastructure led developments. We work with community groups, charity partners and sponsor events in the areas we work. With their help, we identify what infrastructure they need when planning new homes.
