Action group to form to fight Quadrant plans


Concerned residents in Wyberton are looking to form an action group tonight to oppose ‘The Quadrant’ development.

The massive project was announced last month by Boston United chairman and Chestnut Homes director David Newton and could see a supermarket, 500 homes, football ground and a new road built in Wyberton.

The first phase is planned for either side the A16 at the Tytton Lane junction – with a view to also building a link road from there to the A52 near Tesco and more houses once the initial stage is complete.

A public meeting has been called for Tuesday, December 17, at 7pm at Wyberton Village Hall for residents in the area surrounding the planned development to be able to raise their views.

However, campaigner Sue Bell is trying to form an action group ahead of that date.

She told The Standard: “Chestnut Homes have had a head start on the residents of Wyberton, so we are trying to arrange a steering group before the 17th.

“We need a united front to be able to put our points forward. Therefore we are holding a meeting at 7pm on Thursday, December 12, at WI and Scout Hall, Tytton Lane East, Wyberton for that purpose.”

Anyone who wants to attend and join the action group should call Sue on 07958216596.
