The controversial 3,200-home Swanpool development in Lincoln has won planning permission despite residents' fears of worsening traffic congestion and flooding.

The £500m project, that also includes a new Lincoln City FC stadium, a primary school, a hotel, bars and restaurants, commercial premises and a regional sport and leisure complex, was approved by councillors on January 12.

The planning committee passed Lindum Western Growth Community Ltd and the City of Lincoln Council's outline application for the broad outline of scheme.

Councillors also granted full planning permission for two new access points to the site from Skellingthorpe Road and the initial access spine road spur, and a new traffic light controlled junction at Tritton Road including a road bridge over the railway line.
