Lincoln railway footbridge and university masterplan set for approval
Lincoln planners are set to agree the Brayford Wharf East railway footbridge and University of Lincoln masterplan, and pledge their support for Lincoln Eastern Bypass.
The City of Lincoln Council planning committee meets on March 27 to consider the pedestrian footbridge scheme which includes lift towers.
The project also features a freestanding swan habitat and road improvements.
Councillors are recommended to conditionally grant planning permission and the developer may be asked to carry out the road works involved.

Demolishing an old Network Rail steel bridge at the site is also set to be agreed, as is a proposal to move the East Holmes signal box a few metres to the north on the Brayford’s south bank.
The University of Lincoln’s masterplan – a vision to expand the main campus and improve links to the city centre - is due to win outline planning permission.
The overarching vision is for 106,563 sq m of student accommodation, lecture theatres, offices, shops, a hotel, parking and restaurants and cafes and its focus is on the expansion of the university’s future provision of science, technology, engineering and maths.
The city council’s role as a consultee means members will be asked at the meeting to support Lincolnshire County Council’s planning application for the Lincoln Eastern Bypass.
The county council is determining its own application.
