Lincoln College, Longdales Road
Application to dispose of a poorly located part of a wider playing fields complex with road frontage to Longdales Road and immediately adjacent to established housing in order to directly fund new sports facilities. The facilities are a key asset of the local college and also serve a significant community facility with widespread community use.
Our role was to demonstrate that the development would provide a net gain in sports facilities for the college and for wider community use, including the formalisation of community access, and to ensure that the proposed new housing was neighbourly in all respects.
This role was delivered successfully with the necessary consents being secured and the resulting development has been successfully assimilated into the locality with general support despite initial concerns by some local residents.
