LETTER: Why was Quadrant given Government grant?


Why was the Quadrant project given grant money?

The announcement regarding the funding from the Local Enterprise Partnership:

1) Grantham southern relief road

2) Boston Quadrant housing and road

3) University of Lincoln Boole technology centre

4) A grant scheme to unlock rural housing, specifically targeted at East Lindsey and Boston

5) Skegness western relief road and business park

6) Bishop Burton agricultural college

I understand that all of the other five projects receiving funding all have one thing in common ‘all semi-official public’ projects but the Quadrant is purely for profit.

This begs the following questions:

1) Why has it been included?

2) How long has Boston asked/pleaded for a ‘ring or distributor road’ for Boston and have been refused every time?
