This story is over

Proposals to turn a 239-year-old former residential college site in Lincoln into 14 upmarket flats and houses have been approved by councillors.

After a decision on plans for the Chad Varah House were deferred at a planning meeting on January 11, members of the committee and officers visited the site on January 25, 2016.

Plans were then approved at a meeting at City of Lincoln Council on February 8.

The Chad Varah House will be converted into 12 two, three and four bedroom properties ranging from £350,000 to £1 million.

As previously reported, the 18th century Chad Varah House on Wordsworth Street was sold to Dean Draper of Peach Estates in September 2016, who formed a joint company with developers Philip Good and Colin Holden.
