The Consultation

Our Design

As with every McCarthy Stone Retirement Living development, a community feel is encouraged with communal spaces and shared facilities so that residents can get to know their neighbours.

Before we begin designing any proposal, our team of architects spend time researching the architecture and character of the local area to ensure a sensitive design that is in keeping with its surroundings.

With Lincoln’s rich history and the site’s location in the City of Lincoln Conservation Area, it has been critical to us that we propose a high-quality and well-designed scheme, reflecting and appreciating the scale of surrounding buildings and with a character fitting of the local area.

To ensure this, our proposals for the site have undergone an extensive and evolving design process, both with City of Lincoln Council officers and with Lincolnshire Co-op, who are progressing the regeneration of The Cornhill Quarter.

The layout of the site will allow space for car parking within the residential complex. The car park is located underneath the landscaped gardens and can be accessed at street level via an entrance from Melville Street.

We have carefully considered our design, to breathe life into this sustainable brownfield site, and our proposals present an exciting opportunity to bring forward a specialist retirement community in this historic area of Lincoln. This will provide genuine housing choice for older people so that they can continue to live locally in a home that meets their needs and aspirations in their later years.
