Plans in Place: Taking a local approach to character in Lincoln

This document summarises a series of heritage and characterisation evidence projects undertaken in partnership by English Heritage and the City of Lincoln Council between 1999 and 2011, and how this evidence is being used to ensure the City’s unique heritage and character is positively managed, particularly in the planning of new developments and the anticipated growth of the City as the sub region’s Principal Urban Area.  It provides a series of toolkits in this respect;

Toolkit A Using the LTA in plan making;

Toolkit B Using the LTA in making applications for Planning Consent;

Toolkit C Using the LTA in managing applications for development;
Toolkit D Using the LTA in creating a neighbourhood Plan;
Toolkit E using the LTA as a tool for public consultation and engagement;
Toolkit F Using the LTA to improve understanding about the character of Place.
