Project Description

City Centre Conservation Area Consent



Working on behalf of S Harrison Developments Ltd and Travelodge Hotels Ltd, DPP co-ordinated and submitted a full application for a 127-bedroom hotel in Lincoln’s historic core.

The site comprises a vacant brownfield site, in need of regeneration, and adjacent to Lincoln’s new Transport Hub and the new east-west Link Road, in part of the City which is undergoing significant transformation. The site sits within a Conservation Area with long distance views to and from Lincoln Cathedral being a key consideration.

DPP successfully gained planning consent in May 2017 and it is hoped that the Hotel will be ready for occupation in 2018. DPP provided strategic advice and attended pre-application meetings with the Council during which extensive discussions regarding the design and appearance of the 5-storey building were held. Our Planning Statement included an assessment of the scheme on nearby Heritage assets, including a number of Listed buildings, as well as demonstrating that views of the Cathedral would not be adversely impacted.
