Facelift set for Lincoln’s Kind Bar

Improvement works: A bar in Lincoln will add or improve more windows and signage in order to update its look.

Kind Bar on Lincoln’s upper High Street will undergo improvements to the outside of the building.

As approved at a Planning Committee on March 5, the bar will get a new shop front, while along the St Martin’s and Strait side of the building windows will be enlarged and added.

The timber sliding sash windows will be replaced by new windows and information boards will be added on The Strait side of the premises.

A clock face will also be hung from the front of the premises, above the bar’s new signage.

Planning had to be sought for the transformation due to the three-storey building being a grade II listed building from the late 18th century, with 20th century additions.

It is believed the new windows and elevations will have a positive impact on the building, which is a focal point at the top of the High Street.

The bar now has three years to begin work on the alterations, with the recommendation that it must stick to improvements outlined in the plans.
