  11. 11. Key LTA characteristics:• West Parade dominant street/backbone• Gable ends for civic and ecclesiastical buildings• Strong building lines• Repetitive pattern of form, scale and decoration• Corner buildings respect position• Active frontages
  12. 12. Contribution and Design PrinciplesContribution: Principles:• Secondary emphasis on West • Orientate to West Parade Parade • Pattern and style of fenestration• Low activity at street-level• Doesn’t reflect corner position • Corner feature/treatment• Plain with limited decoration • Emphasise repeated form of properties using decorative• Residential/ecclesiastical form elements• Scale, height, building line • Reduce prominence of gables, and use in smaller scale• Contemporary design (D&A) • Modern interpretation of existing characteristics
  13. 13. Key outcomes of using LTA• Shared evidence-base for the negotiation of change• Robust evidence-led place-shaping approach to local distinctiveness• Clarity, rigour and speed in decision-making• Maximise the benefit Lincoln gets from its inherited character and sense of place• Greater ability to monitor and improve how places are developed
