‘We need to pull together’

COUNCIL officers have asked businesses and organisations to pull together to set a vision for Boston’s town centre.

In the Portas’ review it is suggested town teams be set up and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) given more power.

However, council officers Steve Lumb and Ian Martin said the two may end up being one and asked people who have ‘grumbles’ to support Boston BID by providing constructive criticism or even by becoming directors.

Mr Lumb said: “We are Boston PLC and we need to make sure that all of us support Boston PLC.

“It’s about making sure that BID can work successfully and making sure the right directors are on there.”

There will be an opportunity to sign up at the BID Annual General Meeting at the end of February.

See next week’s Standard for comments from BID chairman Niall Armstrong.
