The developer behind the Quadrant plans has said he is ‘disappointed’ by the delay announced by the Secretary of State, but accepts that the department needs more time to look at the decision.
Chestnut Homes managing director and Boston United chairman David Newton said: “We’re obviously disappointed, but they have indicated it will be decided within the next 21 days, so it’s not gone into a bottomless pit. We’re hoping it will be decided within that time.”
He said the company were not reading into the delay as good or bad news and said it was not unexpected - however he said the company would like to get the project moving forward.
He added Chestnut Homes is still working on some of the details of the plans while they awaited the decision.
