Plans to turn a shop unit on the Fernley Park estate, Uckfield, into a home have been refused.
The decision has been made by Wealden District Council.
The change of use bid was opposed by the town council which said that as the site had only rcently been completed insufficient time had elapsed to allow the premises to to be marketed as a shop.
The application for the unit at 17 Baxendale Way was from developer Linden Homes. See our story here
