Demolition works have begun on clearing the site for the redevelopment of St Marks in Lincoln.

Once complete the site will be home to student accommodation, a 1,000-space multi-storey car park, and leisure and retail units.

The former Homebase, Lidl and Topps Tiles, as well as part of the BHS unit have been flattened to make way for the project, which is being managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments.

In total 1,372 student bedrooms will be provided on the site, with the scheme being delivered across a number of phases.

Work is due to start on the site in Spring 2019, but the expected delivery dates of each phase is yet to be outlined.

The original planning application was dismissed by the council but was later granted approval after new designs were submitted.
