Lincolnshire Lakes Image

Lincolnshire Lakes is one of the North of England’s most significant and exciting mixed use investment and development opportunities.

The Lincolnshire Lakes development is a £1.2bn transformational project which aims to deliver a high quality residential, business and recreation environment centered around a unique and breath-taking network of vast lakes, natural water bodies and meandering channels.

The Lincolnshire Lakes project will provide what is estimated to be an additional workforce of 10,000 people with a desirable place to live, spend their free time and raise their family. The homes will be delivered through a series of six new village settlements which will each have local education, health, retail and community facilities providing  the sought after sense of village life.

Work on the project is already underway with a £13m flood defence scheme and design of a £5m recreational lake already well underway.

Business investment

In addition to the sustainable housing development on the Lincolnshire Lakes development is to be a 100,000 square metre business park located on a new motorway junction off the M181 which will provide a new workplace offer for businesses looking to locate in a convenient, accessible and flagship location.

We have been working with experts in the field to secure a robust planning policy for the Lincolnshire Lakes project and very much look forward to seeing the plans come to fruition. The Project will also help to encourage further inward investment to the area bringing opportunities for business and residential alike.
