Plans for another housing development in Boston


Plans have been put forward to build about 80 new homes in Boston – incorporating a public open space and children’s play area.

Larkfleet Homes is bringing forward proposals for the development on land off Wainfleet Road.

A spokesman for the company said: “There continues to be a need for homes in the area, and our proposed development will go some way to meet this local need.”

The homes will be a mixture of two, three, four and five bedroom two-storey houses. There will also be an area of public open space with a children’s play area included as part of the development.

A public exhibition takes place on Tuesday, 3-7pm, at the Ridlington Centre, Sibsey Lane, Boston. Local people are being encouraged to attend as members of the project team from Larkfleet Homes will be on hand to answer questions about the proposals.

For each project Larkfleet takes forward, it will create a small community fund, which will be offered to support community benefit projects as determined by local people.

The fund will be made up of £500 for each house built, meaning that Boston could benefit from a community fund of £40,000. The fund can be used for any purposes specified by the Town Council and can include a number of days of professional support to help create and write bids for specific larger scale community projects.

Tim Slater, Associate Director of Strategic Projects at Larkfleet Group, said “The proposed development will help meet growing housing needs both nationally and locally. We are keen to consult with local people on our proposals and we would like to encourage residents to come along to the public exhibition on the 13 May to ask questions and share their views by completing a feedback form.”
