Refurbishment plans approved for former Lincoln Greenwoods store

Plans to refurbish the former Lincoln Greenwoods store, which closed last year, have been approved by the City of Lincoln Council.

Proposals, submitted by LCS Property, will see the store, which was previously a hotel, will see the removal of the existing shop front, to be replaced with a more traditional one.

Changes will also include opening up a wall connecting the front and rear parts of the building, removing and bringing up some doors and the installation of additional signage.

These plans form part of the multi-million pound redevelopment of the Cornhill Quarter.

Undertaken by City of Lincoln Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Co-operative and Network Rail, the regeneration scheme has already seen the transformation of the area, alongside new stores including Lakeland and 200 Degrees.

The redevelopment of the area will also next see a new Everyman cinema at the site, as well as new cocktail bar – The Botanist, which is currently under construction.
