City farm is backed by Lincoln councillors
The business case for a city farm off Wragby Road in Lincoln has won the backing of councillors.

The authority has now written to DWG to advising it would most likely need to re-submit its a business case to be considered alongside the city farm.
The city council’s executive considered the city farm idea on August 27.
