Comments (4)

The deadline is looming for comments on a revised proposal for more than 100 flats in Lincoln.

People have until February 11 to make their voices heard about the high rise scheme in Wigford Yard.

Campus Living Villages UK Ltd and Kier Property Investment want to build an 11, 10 and 5 storey building which incorporates the former pea factory, plus a separate 7 storey block.

Overall, the scheme comprises 102 flats with a total of 405 bedrooms, shops, facilities, and seminal rooms.

It replaces the previous design of an 11, 9 and 7 storey building, and a standalone 7 storey block. Residents of Witham Wharf, which has 114 flats over nine floors, say the proposed buildings are too tall.

Comments can be emailed to developmentteam@Lincoln.gov.uk quoting reference 2012/1386/F

    I would have thought the planners would have insisted that the buildings be no taller than those surrounding them.

    Great idea and ideal position for the students living accomodation plus it might do some of the get rich quick landlords out of revenue and put more terraced housing back on the property ladder for first time buyers and back in to family dwellings .

    If it means less students being stuck into inapropriate terraced housing then I'm all for it,its the perfect spot and has the bonus of removing another eyesore.
