igh Street Lincoln for Darcy International, retail redevelopment

Planning permission for redevelopment

We are delighted to have achieved full planning permission for D’Arcy Internatlonal Limited with designs aimed at regenerating the lower High Street area of Lincoln City Centre. The planning permission is for a ground floor retail re-modelling and extension at 416a High Street.

Proposals consist of combining two existing retail units and infilling an area previously utilised for rear vehicular access, along with extending the building to the rear.  This will provide an increase in retail area of approximately 3,000ft² bringing the total area to 4,675ft².

The remodelling of the units includes a new frontage to the whole of the ground floor High Street façade which will be replaced in a contemporary style providing a crisp modern façade. Internal reconfiguration and structural works will also be required to maximise the open plan retail space.

Materials and detailing proposed for the extension of the building have been carefully chosen to provide a cohesive addition to the existing building; with matching brickwork and feature corbelling along with a perimeter pitched roof to the rear and north façade to minimise impact on surrounding properties.

Place Architecture works on high profile developments, often in difficult locations and is currently working with John Greed Jewellery on developments to the listed premises on The High Street.  Place is also providing energy improvement consultation for Lincoln City Council for The Terrace, a business hub with 50 serviced workshops, studios and offices on Grantham Street in the City.
