Plans for new Lincoln College medicine teaching clinic in 130-year-old building

Proposals have been lodged by Lincoln College to turn a Grade II listed building off Monks Road into a medicine teaching clinic, photography studio and classroom.

Plans would see the 1970s extension on the building partly demolished and replaced wth a two storey extension to the east.

The original Gibney Building off Monks Road was constructed in 1885

The new medicine clinic would deliver courses such as herbal medicine and acupuncture, also offering treatments to the general public.

Plans would see an internal and external restoration of the building, which sits in the centre of the college campus and is currently used by hair and beauty departments.

The original Gibney Building was constructed in 1885 to accommodate the Lincoln Art College and later became The City School before forming part of the Lincoln College campus.

Plans will be considered by the planning department at the City of Lincoln Council at a later date.
