Plans for Q1.

Boston United officials hope that The Quadrant could create hundreds more jobs for the town.

Last night the Pilgrims unveiled plans to redevelop the south west side of the town, a project which chairman David Newton described as ‘massive’ for Boston.

Newton - who owns the Chestnut Homes property development company - wants to bring life to a 250-acre site which links the A16 near Wyberton to Chain Bridge Road.

It is hoped The Quadrant development will be undertaken in two stages.

The first will incorporate a new £5.5m football stadium and adjacent multi-purpose sportshall, 500 homes, plus a retail area which my include a supermarket, cafes, bars and shops.

This development is being called Q1.

“Q1 will generate up to 450 full-time equivalent jobs in retail, sport, leisure and hospitality,” the club’s plans state.

It is also believed the site could create 650 temporary construction jobs.

Meanwhile, the Q2 development will cover a 200-acre site and it is hoped to include a marina, housing, open spaces, retail and leisure units.

It is hopes that early plans will be submitted to Boston Borough Council in January.

The plans are currently under consultation, and Boston United will host two public exhibitions, on November 23 (noon-5pm) and December 4 (2-8pm).

The first will take place in the Cropleys Lounge, the second at the Pilgrims Lounge. Both are located on York Street.
