Shopping centre gets 7m revamp

Artists' impression of the new centre
The project should start in the spring and be completed by 2010

The first phase of work on a 7m improvement to a shopping complex Lincoln is about to start.

Existing shops and community facilities at the Birchwood Shopping Centre will be improved, and new offices and apartments will be created.

There will also be better car parking, with CCTV and new lighting.

A new entrance will be made and the bus stop relocated first. Work on the centre itself starts in January and the project is due to be completed by 2010.

The Lincolnshire Co-operative is heading the work on the centre.

Washinborough-based Brian E Wright Architects have designed it.

The City of Lincoln Council's development control manager Paul Seddon said: "We welcome the much-needed investment in the centre which will greatly improve the look of the building, the quality of the environment and the experience of local residents visiting and using the centre."
