Local center

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. 

Kate Ellis, Strategic Director of Major Developments at the city council, said: "An initial consultation event on 28 June attracted over 70 visitors, and we gained some valuable feedback during the two sessions.

“This is start of a consultation process where there will be a range of events for people to air their views and give us ideas.

“Our intention is to submit outline planning permission for the Western Growth Corridor, along with detailed junction designs, in October this year.

“We hope that on-site work will begin by late 2018.

“It will be phased project, with key elements taking shape over the next 20 to 25 years.”
