Marina Housing Moratorium Extended in Lewes

creative commons

The Lewes City Council has decided to continue with the moratorium on special exemptions in the commercial marina against residential structures.

WBOC reports that initially the town council had imposed the moratorium because of fears that large townhouses would eat up commercial space.

The action was taken so that the council can review a report from planning consultants on what should be done.

The moratorium will last another six months.
