Lincoln council approves new 584-space temporary car park

City of Lincoln councillors have approved plans for a new temporary car park, to replace spaces lost to work on the multi-million Transport Hub.

The 584-space pay and display car park was given the green light by councillors at a planning committee meeting on Wednesday, June 29.

The car park will be on an unused area of land between Beevor Street and Poplar Avenue, west of the city centre.

It will be used for three years while work is carried out to demolish the existing bus station as part of approved plans for the £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub project.

The site is expected to be enforced by the city council and covered by regular patrols and CCTV.

The council has said that the proposed car park would not generate any additional traffic as it would replace traffic destined for the closed car parks at Tentercroft Street, Thornbridge, Sincil Street and St Marys Street.
