A petition - which has already garnered more than 850 signatures - has been launched to support the Quadrant development.

The online and paper campaign has been set up by Boston United Supporters Association, which said it felt it was important for supporters to be able to show their backing.

Press officer Craig Singleton said the petition demonstrated ‘an abundance of support for this development’.

He said: “In just the first two days, the iPetition was signed by 494 people which we are delighted with.

“A lot of the comments that have been made make some very valid points about the importance of The Quadrant too — not just to Boston United but to the town and community as a whole. We hope people continue to get behind the project, which really is vital to the club’s future.”

The petition comes after a referendum of residents in Wyberton delivered a ‘no’ vote - albeit with a turnout of just 18.76 per cent.

A spokesman for Chestnut Homes said it was pleased supporters of the scheme have been given a platform to get behind the project, adding: “The council has also received a high level of supportive comments for the project directly and we hope that people will continue to voice their opinions as we move towards the planning committee in August.”
