This story is over

Budget hotels in Lincoln will face new competition should developers receive permission to construct a 127 bedroom Travelodge in the centre of the city.

Proposals due to City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee on May 24 have been recommended for approval.

Landowners S Harrison Developments and Travelodge plan to build on land off Tentercroft Street to create 60 double bedrooms, 61 family rooms and six accessible rooms spread across five floors.

The new hotel, which would create a number of new jobs in the city, would also include ground floor cafe and breakfast facilities as well as a 22-space car park.

York-based developers S Harrison purchased the land off Tentercroft Street from the City of Lincoln Council for an undisclosed sum in March.

The building would sit next to the recently completed East West Link Road, close to the High Street and the ongoing transport hub.
