The Prison Service has confirmed that it is reviewing the future of Lincoln Prison but insists no decisions have yet been made about its future and that there are currently no plans to close the site.
We are considering changes to the future role of HMP Lincoln. No decisions have been made and there are currently no plans to close the prison. We are committed to ensuring our estate meets the needs of the prison population and best suits the current capacity. Any changes to the role of HMP Lincoln would also need to incorporate the ongoing requirement to deliver prisoners to and from the area's courts.
