Businesses invited to give their views on Lincoln Western Growth Corridor plans

Businesses are being invited to give their views on a proposed major development at a consultation event tomorrow.

The event will take place on Friday, August 4 between 12pm and 2pm at Think Tank on Ruston Way, Lincoln.

Covering 240 hectares to the north of Skellingthorpe Road, the Lincoln Western Growth Corridor is located close to Lincoln City Centre and represents an opportunity to ‘create an attractive place for people to live and work’.

Following the adoption of the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan, in partnership with West Lindsey and North Kesteven district councils, this site has been given in principle approval for development as one of four urban extensions for Lincoln.

City of Lincoln Council’s proposed Western Growth Corridor development includes:

  • 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 event on August 4 will introduce the development to local businesses and provide an opportunity to give feedback.

Kate Ellis, Strategic Director for Major Developments at the city council, said: “The proposed Western Growth Corridor development would go a long way toward meeting the need for more housing and jobs in Lincoln.

“In order to progress an appropriate development, we are seeking the views of local businesses to help identify any issues, constraints and opportunities that could be included in the scheme’s final design.”
