IMMIGRATION: Council wants you to have your say on report

BOSTON residents are being urged to have their say on the recommendations being put forward to tackle issues with population growth.

Boston Borough Council made 28 recommendations in its report in a bid to deal with some of the challenges arising from a population which has risen by almost 10,000 in just 10 years - from Britain and abroad.

People in the borough are now being urged to read the report and share their views on the evidence and the recommendations and how they could be improved.

The report is set to be the sole topic of conversation at a special overview and scrutiny committee meeting held at 7pm on Thursday, October 18.

Coun Paul Kenny, chairman of the group behind the report, said: “This report is not the end of this process – it’s only the beginning. We now want to hear a response from the ordinary people of Boston and the borough.”

Residents can submit questions and comments in writing to Ms J. Collier, Democratic Services, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR or via email to janette.collier@boston.gov.uk and they must be received by 5pm on Monday, October 15.
