The Hub is the result of a partnership between City of Lincoln Council, Greater Lincolnshire LEP, DfT, Lincolnshire Co-op, Network Rail, East Midlands Trains and Lincolnshire County Council.
£11m funding from the DfT with a further £2m from the GLLEP. The remainder of the £30m budget funded by City of Lincoln Council.
A significant regeneration project that has transformed the city centre providing new bus station, 1000 space multi-storey car park, retail space and pedestrian plaza with improvements to rail station forecourt. The Hub creates a new more accessible and attractive gateway to the city.
The site had previously seen many failed private development proposals, all of which centred around commercial development within which improvements to the transport infrastructure and public realm were secondary. This development, led by the City of Lincoln shifted the emphasis from commercially lead regeneration towards a transport and infrastructure lead scheme intended to act as a catalyst for regeneration of the area. Evidence of this regeneration can be seen in the new privately-owned developments which have followed.
The development of the Transport Hub has reversed the downward trend of this area, rejuvenated interest in further.
