Changes to John Greed Jewellery premises
Applications for planning permission and listed building consent have been submitted to Lincoln City Council for the refurbishment, internal alteration and shop front renewal of a grade 2 listed building on the corner of Lincoln’s High Street and Cornhill for John Greed Jewellery.
The work includes replacement of the shop front and fascia, as well as a complete refurbishment and re-organisation of the interior. The design re-establishes a carefully considered and well-proportioned shop front in a contemporary manner, while being respectful to the building’s heritage. The internal re-organisation includes removal of a stair serving the first floor retail space and suspended ceilings, as well as removal of display windows which block views into the store, all of which create an enlarged and clear retail space on the ground floor with clear visibility from the street on both High Street and Cornhill frontages.
Repairs to the fabric of the building are also planned and listed building consent has already been obtained for these, working closely with the City Council planning and conservation officers. The work includes re-roofing, restoration and replacement of windows, external wall brickwork and stone / stucco features, and replacement of the decorative cornices and lead parapet gutters.
