Cost of Living

With significant rise in the cost of living we know that some households will be struggling financially, emotionally or because they need practical advice and help. Here is some key information on what support is available and how to access it. As new schemes, advice and support becomes available this page will be kept updated.

Gypsy & Travellers

Housing information and advice for gypsy and travellers

On behalf of Lincolnshire County Council, the Council manages 24 permanent pitches for gypsies and travellers within Boston.

These fully fenced pitches provide hard-standing for:

  • one static caravan,
  • a tarmac drive for two vehicles,
  • a utility block containing a small kitchen, a separate toilet and bathroom and
  • a metered electricity supply.

Admission onto the site is restricted to people with a travelling background and accessed via a waiting list maintained by the Council.  The site has a visiting warden and pitches are rented out under strict licence arrangements.

To register for a pitch, you can either contact the Council directly (01205 314200) or email your name, current address, household details, address history and contact telephone number to: the housing team.
