For City of Lincoln Council
Lincoln is a cathedral city and the county town of Lincolnshire. The High Street Character Area sits within and to the south of Lincoln’s city centre. To its north is the medieval core of the city, including Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle. To its east and south are Lincoln’s inner residential suburbs. To the west are inner suburbs and edge of centre retail and office parks.
Woodhall was commissioned by the City of Lincoln Council to assess the special character and appearance of Lincoln’s High Street Character Area that straddles three conservation areas; CA No. 1 Cathedral and City Centre, CA 2: St Peter- at-Gowts, and CA 6: West Parade and Brayford. It is intended that this character area will be designated as a new conservation area in the future. The appraisal followed the structure recommended by Historic England and put forward a number of suggestions for future management in order to protect the character and appearance of the designated area.
