This story is over

New plans including an indoor crazy golf course and Starbucks café have been submitted as part of a £2 million proposed redevelopment of Lincoln Bowl.

The site on Washingborough Road also plans to increase the arcade zone, create private group hire areas for pool and table tennis and improve the aesthetics outside the building.

Speaking to The Lincolnite, owner Simon Craddock said that if plans are approved, he is ready to go ahead with the project straight away and hopes that work could be completed by January 2018.

“Bowling has been very successful but we want people to come to Lincoln Bowl for more than just one thing and would love people to come and stay all afternoon,” he said.

“We hope that we can become a leisure destination for families and groups of people to come to, and we really want to do something interesting.”

Discussing the indoor 18 hole crazy golf course, Simon said that “players will go on a journey around the Disney-esque course.”

Steve Dunn Architects have made the designs and will be overseeing the project.

Steve said the project is “one of the most exciting leisure developments the city has seen for many years.”

If plans go ahead Simon hopes to recruit between 20 and 25 new members of staff.

“I want Lincoln Bowl to be a place where children are asking their parents to take them with the adults wanting to go as well,” he added.

Simon said that Lincoln Bowl will remain open as usual during the proposed refurbishment.

City of Lincoln Council will consider the plans at a date to be decided.
