Disappointment for The University of Lincoln as Accommodation Plans are Rejected

Posted by Ross Jones-Morris in

A major development planned for the Brayford Marina has been rejected by the City of Lincoln's Planning Committee after the Lincoln Civic Trust branded it 'out-of-keeping with the surroundings'.

Had they gone ahead a four-storey building and two 11-storey buildings, replete with 220 square metres of retail space, would have been built next to the Brayford Flyover. The development would also have involved demolishing a building on the waterfront.

The building would have also provided 500 much needed student bedrooms. As the University of Lincoln looks to house its growing student body rejections like this will increasely put pressure on their 'Brayford Campus Masterplan' scheme, started in 2012. Officers previously advised that there "would not be significant grounds to refuse the application."
