Brayford Enterprise Park, Lincoln
Following earlier work on the Beevor Street Regeneration Masterplan for the City of Lincoln Council and ‘Investors in Lincoln’, Globe was commissioned by Brayford Partnership Ltd to translate these principles into a substantial mixed use development – Brayford Enterprise Park. The area had historically played a central role in Lincoln’s economy and employment. Immediately adjacent to the city centre and the University of Lincoln’s main campus, it was perceived to offer significant opportunities for sustainable, mixed-use urban development.
Globe worked with the client, architects and other consultants to explore the physical, economic and policy issues associated with this scheme which departed significantly from the local authority’s planning allocations for this part of Lincoln. Globe led and coordinated liaison with the planning authority and other regulatory agencies, the local business community and other key stakeholders, and ensured that all relevant technical and policy issues were fully addressed in an Integrated Planning Statement submitted with the application.
The proposed development included top quality employment facilities, with high-tech office space as well as a number of live/ work units; 400 residential apartments; ancillary businesses, such as local shops and leisure facilities; a 120 bedroom hotel; and a multi-storey car park.
As part of a multi-disciplinary design and development team, Globe steered the proposal successfully through a complex planning process, obtaining Outline Planning Permission and promoting Brayford Enterprise Park as a key strategic mixed-use development area.
