After a number of public consultations by Birchwood Big Local in the Birchwood area of Lincoln. It became clear that the majority of people in the area desire an increase in the number of children’s play areas.
Jasmin Green was identified as the area most in need of facilities for young people. It was recognised that the key factor in installing play equipment was the long-term maintenance and eventual replacement.
Following consultation with the City of Lincoln Council, a scheme was developed where a number of affordable rent properties would be constructed on Jasmin Green, with an income from the properties contributing towards the long-term upkeep of play equipment planned to be installed on the Green.

Due to increases costs relating to the Covid Crisis and Ukraine war this scheme will no longer proceed.

BACLT is now in discussions with City of Lincoln Council aiming to to still develop the play area on Jasmin Green.
