Further 272 bedrooms approved for Lincoln’s Viking House development

Plans to introduce a further 272 student bedrooms as part of the recently announced Viking House development in Lincoln have been given the green light by the City of Lincoln Council.

The development has now received unanimous planning permission from the City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee.

The developer aims to meet some of the demand generated by the University of Lincoln’s ambitious expansion plans, which is anticipated to see the population of the University’s Brayford Campus increase by more than 3,300 students in the next seven years.

Dominik Jackson, director of Jackson & Jackson Developments, said: “Whilst the University’s expansion is a huge success story, the increased student numbers creates a lot of challenges in the housing sector in Lincoln, which is why we saw the importance of using this space to fill that gap in the market.

“We have done a lot of work in improving the Brayford area and are pleased to be delivering another well-designed and modern development in the city.

“We worked very closely with the planning and conservation officers at the Council on the design and functionality of the site and are proud of the outcome. We are pleased to see works starting on phase one now and look forward to delivering this scheme in the centre of Lincoln for students to enjoy for many years to come.”

The University of Lincoln has fully supported the proposal of the development, which aims to make a significant improvement to the entrance of the city by improving views along Newland and Carholme Road.

The build programme, which is being delivered by local construction company LGG Projects, is expected to reach completion by September 2019.
