Shopping complex plans submitted

A new shopping complex could be built in Lincoln by 2012, if proposals are approved by the city council.

Plans for the Lindongate project, which would include a department store, 34 shops and 180 apartments have now been submitted to the authority.

Developers Modus said the project could see a complete revamp of the Sincil Street area and a new bus station.

Residents can view the plans and give their opinions on the complex at Lincoln Central Library on Monday.

'Leisure destination'

The project would also include new restaurants and a 1,000 space car park.

The developers said they had been canvassing public opinion on the development for the last six months.

James Ridings, director of Modus, said: "Having worked hard with the public and the stakeholders of the City Centre Master Plan over the last two years, we are delighted to be submitting a planning application for this exciting scheme.

"This puts the scheme on target for completion in late 2011/early 2012, and will significantly improve retailing within Lincoln as well as building on its great success as a leisure destination."
