Boston Town Centre Strategy and Action Plan Consultation
Boston Borough Council is committed to working in partnership with businesses, residents and partners to revitalise the high street and the surrounding public realm, making the town centre a place to be proud of, a place recognised for its great heritage and a place that is cherished by its diverse communities to work, live and enjoy leisure time in.
The Council sees the importance of the town centre as a key economic hub that supports the vibrancy of this great borough and that is also a key focal point for those who reside within the area's local neighbourhoods.
This draft Town Centre Strategy sets a clear vision and action plan for Boston Town Centre. It seeks to better align council service delivery with partners, community representatives and the voluntary and community sector in order to lead a programme of work which ensures that Boston Town Centre is clean and safe, open for business, a great place for culture, heritage and events and a place that is on a very real transformation journey that will ensure present and future generations enjoy the very best that Boston's town centre can provide.
The draft Strategy has been prepared from views and information supplied corporately across the Council with officers continuing to reach out to partners, businesses and the community to further inform this important document. It covers the plan period of 2023-2027.
The draft Strategy is supported by evidenced based work, connecting organisational strategies and action plans and investment secured. These include: The Boston Town Deal, The Historic England Place Panel visit and report, The Government's High Street Task Force Report, Levelling Up funding and partnership, Cultural Framework for Renewal and subsequent National Portfolio Organisation funding with priority status from Arts Council England, Empowering Healthy Communities and SELCP Community Safety Plan.
Community and Business consultation will be undertaken between 15th September 2023 and 15th October 2023 in order to further develop and inform the Strategy and its associated action plan, ensuring the views of local stakeholders, businesses, and residents are an integral part of its creation.
