Western Growth Corridor Consultation

Learn more about the plans >


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.

Since the previous round of public consultation on the development we have been working with Lindum Group, which has purchased land on the site adjacent to our own, and who will be our delivery partner in bringing the development forward.

We have been compiling your feedback and working with partners to pull together the final documents which will form the planning application for the site. Given the complex nature of such an important development, it has been essential to ensure we are using the most up-to-date information available and have the full understanding of all stakeholders.

Before we finalise the planning application, we are now carrying out a further round of consultation in partnership with Lindum.

We will be consulting as the developer of the site and once the application is submitted to the local planning authority, there will be opportunity to respond to the relevant planning consultations.

The workshops listed at the foot of this page take place between 5 and 9 February and 2019, with the overall consultation running from 1 to 18 February 2019. 

The events will have a range of experts present who have been working on the proposals available to answer any questions you may have.

All stakeholders will be able to supply their formal comments once the planning application is submitted but, prior to this, the workshops are your opportunity to hear more about the plans and the updates which have been made, especially to our flood and traffic mitigation strategies.

While all of the workshops are open to everyone, given some of the detailed responses on two of the key topic areas we are also holding technical workshops on flood and transport for those who want to understand and go into the technical detail of those topics. Non-technical versions of the flood and transport workshops will take place on the same day.

All workshops are being held on a drop-in basis, there is no need to book.


The consultation period for City of Lincoln Council’s proposals for development of land at Western Growth Corridor closed on 15th November 2017.

We have had an excellent response so far and from feedback already received, it is clear that transport is a key concern. The county council is currently updating its Lincoln Transport model (which analyses traffic flow around the city) and has confirmed that it will be ready for the end of this month.

It makes sense that the proposed road layout for the development is run through the new model to ensure that the proposed improvements to the road network are the best they can be.

The modelling itself will take one month to run and then a few weeks to analyse. If this new model supports the proposed highway changes then the planning application will be submitted by the end of March 2018.

If changes are required as a result of the new modelling then a revised timescale will be drawn up to reflect the level/scale and impact of the changes.

We, as a major landowner of the Western Growth Corridor area (which extends to 240 hectares and is located to the north of Skellingthorpe Road with the A46 to the west and Tritton Road to the east), are working with the main adjacent landowners to bring forward the development of the site as a sustainable urban extension of the city now that it has been approved in principle as part of the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan adopted on 24 April 2017.

 Current draft proposals include:

  • up to 3200 dwellings, with a local centre comprising of retail and commercial units and a new primary school    
  • a commercial employment area of up to 20HA    
  • a regional sport and leisure complex, comprising a new stadium, health and leisure facilities, a hotel and ancillary food and drink elements   
  • improved highway links  including bus priority, cycling and walking routes connecting to and from the surrounding areas    
  • flood defence improvements that enable the development and provide better flood      protection to existing residential areas

In progressing the development proposals for the site, views of the community are being sought to identify any key concerns or ideas that could be incorporated within the proposals for the scheme.
