St George’s Hospital has submitted a planning proposal to the City Of Lincoln Council for “the provision of an additional 29 car parking spaces and associated remedial works to the existing car park and roadways and extension of the dropped kerb to the pathway of the existing vehicular access to the site”.
Details of the planning application can be found at the planning and building page of the Lincoln City Council website.
Planning Reference 2017/0857/FUL.
Standard Consultation Expiry Date Wed 30 Aug 2017
Determination Deadline Fri 29 Sep 2017
It appears from the proposed site plan that access from Benbow Way will be restricted by drop-down bollards (see image 2 below).
The application states: “St George’s site has recently undergone the redevelopment of some of the existing buildings and facilities. However, the identified use of the site has remained the same as a mental health trust site with mixed use of wards, day centre and administration. The configuration of the existing building footprints has remained the same. However, there has been an increased need to provide additional parking and also manage the vehicular interface with the adjacent housing estate.
Currently, there is access to and from the application site from the housing estate and the proposal includes for stopping this off and providing additional parking and rationalisation of the vehicular flow on site. Part of the application intent is therefore to provide a safer site by reducing vehicular interface with the housing estate.”
“The proposals will temporarily affect the existing car parking arrangements during construction. Temporary arrangements will need to be made for accommodating staff and visitors including phasing of the works to provide some car parking whilst the works are taking place.”
Long Leys residents can make comments either for or against the application at the City of Lincoln building & planning website.
