The outline plans for the 212-hectare site off the A15 are up for public consultation on Friday, March 4 and Saturday, March 5.

Agriculture, research, science, heritage and sports facilities will be built to secure the future of the site as a heritage asset and grow its specialisms in the agri-food technology industry.

The additional housing proposed for the site will fund the new facilities, teaching and research.

A new field station would be created to support agriculture and environmental scientific research as well as a heritage centre, where researchers and members of the public can explore Riseholme’s historic past.

The university is pursuing innovative research in technologies such ‘smart farming’ and autonomous robotic systems with its Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology.
