Councillors set to approve student accommodation plans for Lincoln pub

Councillors are set to approve plans for the demolition of a Lincoln pub, to be replaced with student accomodation.

Members of the planning committee at the City of Lincoln Council are set to approve the plans this evening, which would see the demolition of the Golden Cross pub at 431 – 434 High Street.

Plans would also see the erection of a three storey building to accommodate 47 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms for use as student accommodation with associated access, car parking and landscaping.

The application site is roughly square in shape and occupied by the two-storey Golden Cross pub, which was built in 1959.

The site is located to the eastern side of High Street at the junction with Queen Street.

Each floor of the new three storey building would be served by a common room / kitchen and two laundry rooms proposed on the first and second floor.

It has been recommended that plans are approved.
