City of Lincoln Council's planning committee is set to approve plans to convert a former Lincoln nursing home into 11 residential flats. On Wednesday, August 10, the committee will be recommended to give the go-ahead to Graham Smith’s application despite backlash from nearby residents.

A number of objections raised concerns around car parking, the loss of trees, bin storage, the over-concentration of flats and noise. The council says that the proposal would be an appropriate reuse of the building which is in an established residential area.

Officers said: "The external works to be building would be minimal and therefore would have no adverse impact on visual amenity." They also added that the proposal would not result in loss of trees and, with five fewer bedrooms than when it was a care home, it would not be an "overintensification in the use of the building".
