Lincoln MP Karl McCartney says the 3,200-home Swanpool development needs to be done in the "best way possible" without exacerbating traffic congestion.

The broad vision for the £500m project, which 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.

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.

The council said traffic fears could be mitigated, while houses built on raised platforms and a network of drainage channels will address flood risk.

Councillors voted 16 to 11 in favour of the proposals, with opposition members voting against.
