Plans to convert Lincoln Gospel Hall iinto 78-bed nursing home
Plans to convert an evangelical Christian Gospel Hall iinto a new 78-bed nursing home have been unveiled.
Planning permission to demolish the site in Lincoln and construct 10 new dwellings was previously obtained in 2020, but was never executed.
This latest proposal seeks permission to redevelop the site into a nursing home alongside parking spaces for 29 cars, which includes two disabled car parking bars and an ambulant parking bay.
In their Planning Statement, the developers wrote: “The delivery of a nursing home on this site will contribute to creating a socially inclusive community, whilst also providing significant numbers of jobs and employment to the local area both during construction and in the longer-term operation of the nursing home.
“It is considered that the proposal would contribute to the built and natural environment in this location by providing a community building that makes best use of the site.
“In summary, the proposed development would significantly outweigh any adverse effects that are attributable to the application.
“For above reasons, and in the absence of any conflict with planning policy or other material planning considerations, it is considered that with the incorporation of suitable conditions, planning permission should be granted for the application proposals.”
