Revised plans for the Western Growth Corridor submitted to planning authority

Revised plans which set out to provide 3,200 new homes as part of a Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE), have been submitted to the city’s planning authority.

Both Lindum Western Growth Community Limited and City of Lincoln Council are working to bring about the Western Growth Corridor between Skellingthorpe Road and Tritton Road, and the scheme will see new homes, 20 hectares of commercial/employment space, a new Leisure Village, green space and flood mitigation improvements.

The city’s planning authority has received a submission of revised and additional documents for the scheme, and if approved, it will create thousands of new jobs, improved infrastructure and will boost the local economy.

The revised plans emphasise the priority of sustainable travel in both the proposed new community and in the wider south Lincoln areas, and the revisions propose to ease traffic flow in the surrounding communities near Skellingthorpe road.

The scheme has been estimated that, using normal household expenditure rates, it could generate up to £22m per year spend in the local Lincoln economy.
