New Build Housing

Hermit Street

City Council has planning permission for the construction of 11 new, high-quality, sustainable council homes on Hermit Street in the city centre. Building these will require the demolition of 49 garages to make way for the new properties. These homes will all be available for rent through the City of Lincoln Council.

The scheme will deliver a range of family properties, comprising two and three-bed houses. 

Each property will be council rented accommodation, equipped with two parking spaces and an electric vehicle charging point.

In addition, a landscaping scheme will be provided for both the entrance to Hermit Street from Portland Street and from Monson Street to benefit the surrounding area.

The construction is scheduled to begin in October 2023 and due to finish in September 2024. These properties will be allocated and advertised through the council’s choice based lettings scheme in summer 2024.
