Register your land for local plan

BOSTON Borough Council is on the hunt for land which will be ripe for housing development over the next 20 years, in a bid to form a housing plan for the area.

The authority is in the process of drawing up its Local Plan, which will act as a blueprint for development in the area, and is appealing for people who own land which could be of use to come forward and register it.

Residents and landowners in the Boston area are being asked to register their land in a pre-plan exercise called the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment which aims to investigate as many potential housing sites as possible before the plan goes to print.

When it is completed the plan will identify sites for development between now and 2031.

The council has said this method is the best way for landowners to promote their sites.

Any space 0.25 acres or larger may be eligible for inclusion on the local plan.

Anyone interested can obtain a registration form at Forms must be sent to Simon Eldred, Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR by Friday, August 12.
