Following an agreement between Terra and a private landowner to purchase a 11Ha (27.3-acre) site, planning for a mixed-use development in Boston is now underway
Currently, there is an expired Outline Planning Approval, granted in 2016 by Boston Borough Council.
There will be a detailed submission for the first phase of 100 homes, the care home and the additional 215 residential units covered by an outline plan. It will also incorporate a large expanse of Public Open Space and a fully-equipped play area as a focal point for the scheme.
The mixed-use development in Boston
A proposal of two-bedroom apartments, bungalows, and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses will be made for the mixed-use development.
Opposite the site’s entrance is Hawthorn Tree Primary School. The majority of the surrounding area will be predominantly residential in character.
Pilgrim Hospital is only two miles from the Toot Lane site. The hospital is a major employment hub and looks after the whole of the South Lincolnshire area.
Boston College and the Grade I listed St Botolphs Church, which are visible as far away as Norfolk, are both only a mile away.
In terms of transport, Boston Train Station offers regular direct services to Skegness, Grantham and Nottingham. The A52, A17, A46 and A1 also connect the mixed-use development in Boston to the national motorway network.
Abundant employment opportunities
Land and development director of Terra Strategic Jordan Langdon-Bates said:
“With so many employment opportunities close by, Boston is an attractive and affordable place to live. The scale of this well-located site will enable the creation of a high quality new community of eco-efficient modern homes within easy reach of town centre amenities and local schooling.
“This immediately available site could help to meet South East Lincolnshire’s annual housing targets at a time when there is a considerable shortfall in the number of new homes being built across the UK. We are looking forward to working with Boston Borough Council’s Officers, Local Councillors and all stakeholders to move forward with our plans.”
