Doddington Road South Residential


Doddington Road South Residential Character Area (view detailed map) is a small residential area dating to the Post-war period located on the southern fringes of the city of Lincoln. The area comprises four residential developments lying to the rear of radial road development along Doddington Road and Newark Road.

Doddington Road South Character Area consists of residential housing developments built during the Post-war period [1946-1966 AD]. Residential development has overwritten much of the former rural landscape, however some traces of earlier activity remain evident in the modern townscape.

Post-war development has overwritten much of the area’s former landscape character, and as such few traces of the area’s past remain visible in the current townscape. The scale, density and layout of streets and houses is similar throughout much of the area. Many aspects of the townscape are strongly coherent across the whole Character Area, showing similar approaches towards the construction of housing in the latter half of the 20th century. In general houses are plain with simple, often structural decoration. The style decoration of houses varies slightly between each of the four residential developments, although houses are generally similar within each development unit. The style of some earlier houses are evocative of the art deco architectural style, whereas others reflect the austerity of the Post-war period.
