Plans to demolish a former shopping centre in Lincoln have been given approval.

Lincolnshire Co-op had applied for permission to bulldoze its former City Square shopping centre as part of a wider regeneration plan for the city centre site.

The plans were approved by City of Lincoln Council at a meeting last week.

Proposals for a six-storey hotel on the site are currently pending full approval.

Concerns were previously raised about anti-social behaviour at the vacant site, which closed in 2019.
