PDT advises on the sale of the site of a former telephone exchange at Newick, East Sussex

In a number of parts of the South East, land with the benefit of planning permission is becoming as rare as hens teeth as developers battle with the constraints of nitrates, water neutrality, bio diversity and a central Government that seems to have encouraged local authorities to (stop) slow down the planning process.
This makes it particularly satisfying to have completed on the sale of the site for 36 units at the former telephone exchange at Newick, East Sussex.


It is a site that our client John Lewin, Constantia Estates has been promoting for over 15 years and if ever there was a time to use the phrase ‘good things come to those who wait’ it is surely now.


"I’ve worked with James Clewlow and his team at PDT solicitors for many years and have always been delighted with their advice.  The purchase of the Newick site via an option agreement from an unmotivated vendor and subsequent resale presented us with a very challenging set of transactions and James provided not only excellent legal advice but worked tirelessly with me to get the deal through in the tightest of timescales"

John Lewin, Constantia Estates

Congratulations to John on his perseverance and to Chris Mian and his team at Whitehall Homes LLP who were the successful purchaser.
