Lincoln Western Growth Corridor

The Lincoln Western Growth Corridor is located close to the City Centre and represents an opportunity to create an attractive place for people to live and work.

The proposals will seek to get outline planning permission for

  • up to 3,200 homes
  • a local centre with retail and commercial units
  • a new primary school
  • a commercial employment area of up to 20 hectares
  • a sport and leisure complex, with a new stadium, health and leisure facilities, a hotel and food and drink provision

The site covers 240 hectares and is located to the north of Skellingthorpe Road, Lincoln. 

To progress an appropriate development scheme we have instructed a consultant team to assess all aspects of the site. As part of this we are seeking the views of the community to help identify any key issues, constraints and opportunities that could be included in the final design of the scheme.

You can find more information in the pages below and you can download a presentation from the consultation event held on 28th June 2017.

Planning policy context

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan was adopted on 24 April 2017, and provides planning policies for the growth and regeneration of Central Lincolnshire until 2036. Between the Central Lincolnshire authorities (City of Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey), a total of 36,960 new homes need to be delivered. As Lincoln is one of the largest settlements it will be required to deliver approximately two thirds of the total developments.

In addition to the new homes there will be new employment, commercial and leisure developments, schools, sports pitches and public open spaces 

You can find more in depth details regarding the Western Growth Corridor in Policy LP30 of the Local Plan, including how the site is to be developed and key objectives such as the creation of priority public transport routes and how the former tip will be mediated.
