Plans to build a seven-storey block of student accommodation in Lincoln have been recommended for approval.

Jackson and Jackson Developments are looking to build the student accommodation at 27-29 Clasketgate, after having previously been granted planning permission to build a 63-bed hotel on the site.

The development will consist of 114 student bed spaces, as well as a commercial unit on the ground floor.

Meanwhile, work has already begun on building a five-storey, 118-bed scheme to the north of the site.

Documents submitted as part of the application process said of the scheme: "The building proposed is appropriate in terms of its use and is of a high quality design. The design is clearly different from the approved hotel but it is an equally appealing and is sensitive to its context. The scale and massing are very similar to the previous approval and the relationship with the building under construction to the north is equally carefully considered."
