Lincoln High Street Public Realm Improvement Scheme

Lincolnshire County Council is developing proposals for a new pedestrian area at the bottom of Lincoln High Street as part of the East-West Link project.

Designs for the proposed pedestrianised high street

On completion of the East-West Link in 2016, the section of the High Street between Tentercroft Street and St Mary’s Street will be closed to traffic, except for service vehicles during off peak times. During the day it will effectively be a pedestrianised zone, similar to the High Street to the north of St Mary’s Street.

A proposal for improving the area through the provision of a high quality hard landscaping scheme has been released. The work would see the recently-pedestrianised area between Tentercroft Street and St Mary’s Street paved in natural stone with new seating and signage installed, creating a more open and pleasant space, with the potential for activities such as street markets and outdoor cafes.

There are also plans for a ‘gateway’ feature to be installed near the junction with Tentercroft Street, providing a welcoming focal point for the area. Themes being explored include linking the ‘gateway’ with the historic uphill quarter and the Magna Carta. This would be reliant on private-sector funding.

The scheme would be delivered by Lincolnshire County Council using part of the £2.7m granted by Central Government (via Department for Communities and Local Government) as Growth Point Pump Priming funds to “help unlock growth in Lincoln”.
