Plans for a multi-million pound development in Lincoln have been agreed in principle by the city's council.

The Lindongate scheme includes a new bus station, department store, restaurants and a 900-space car park.

The City of Lincoln Council has granted outline planning permission for the project.

Lincolnshire Co-operative, which is behind the plans, said it would bring more jobs to the city.

The application was originally submitted in June 2008 but was amended following a public consultation.

The plans went on show at City Hall, on Beaumont Fee, in November.

The earliest phase of work likely to commence would be a proposed new footbridge over the railway from the Tentercroft Street car park.
