Acis Housing Group has asked West Lindsey District Council for permission to build the new homes off Bowling Green Lane and Wilson Street.
Alongside the four-storey apartment blocks, the plans also consist of a mixture of two-story affordable, shared ownership and private homes and an eight-bedroom, wheelchair accessible, supported living bungalow.
In documents before the authority, the applicants say: “The position of each dwelling has been designed to make the most efficient use of the site while respecting the amenity of the surrounding houses and urban grain.”
A recent public consultation event was well attended, say the applicants, adding: “In general, people were positive about improvements to what is perceived as ‘overgrown wasteland’.”
A new road would be created off Bowling Green Lane, connecting back to Wilson Street and Japan Road.
The scheme would include 218 car parking spaces.
