On Wednesday 23rd October, councillor’s from Boston Borough Council’s Cabinet visited Chestnut Home’s Quadrant estate, and the new site of Boston United’s football stadium.
Welcomed by Chairman of Boston United, David Newton and Director of Chestnut Homes, Neil Kempster, councillors were shown a detailed plan of building around the site, including proposals for a 66 bed care facility, new kitchen and bathroom showroom, petrol filling station and much more.
Speaking of the development, Portfolio Holder for Housing and Communities, Councillor Martin Griggs said: “It’s truly great to see Chestnut Homes bringing such a staggering volume of new homes to Boston, with 20% being offered as part of the Affordable Housing programme. Combined with the additional facilities on the site including refreshment chains, care facilities and much more, The Quadrant is a fantastic project that the town should be proud of.”
Continuing from Councillor Grigg’s comment, Leader of Boston Borough Council, Aaron Spencer said: “The investment brought to Boston by Chestnut Homes has always been a welcome one, and The Quadrant scheme, along with the proposed distributor road, will provide a fantastic, modernised gateway to the town, when complete. Together with the new stadium, which is well under construction, the facilities provided and multi-purpose venue, a new lease of life will be brought to the sports scene, not only across the borough, but county-wide too.
“I’m delighted to see the community and education programme is continuing to excel, with a new partnership with Boston College providing additional support, and I’m also excited to see that the plans for the Community Stadium will include a banqueting hall, badminton facilities, dance studio and much more.”
Plans also include opportunities for local public transport services to provide a direct connection from the stadium grounds, looping through The Quadrant and returning to the town. Considerable financial investment has been provided as part of the project, into local education and health facilities.
