First Homes Take Shape

27 June 2017

If you’ve driven down the A16 recently you may have spotted the new homes which are taking shape at our Quadrant development.

The news homes are the first timber framed houses to be built on the site as part of phase one. It is hoped these houses will be finished late this summer and new residents will be able to move in once the roads and pathways have been completed this autumn.

Some of the homes being built will be used as our show home village which the public will be able to come and look around to look at plans and reserve future homes.

Work begins on first homes at The Quadrant

Building work has begun on the first homes at a major new housing development in Boston.

Chestnut Homes has commenced plot construction at The Quadrant in Wyberton, a mixed-use scheme which will eventually comprise 500 homes, commercial premises, a foodstore and a new stadium for Boston United Football Club.

Planning permission was granted earlier this month [April] for the first two phases of homes, which are being built on 11 acres of land to the south of Tytton Lane East.

Phases one and two will feature a total of 147 homes, 62 of which will be provided as affordable housing, ranging from one and two-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom detached family houses.

Construction work on these homes is expected to take around three years to complete, with the first plots due to go on sale at the end of this year.

This part of the development will also include an area of green open space with a toddler play area, as well as a series of ecological enhancements, including swales and drainage basins, and bird and bat boxes.

A new roundabout on the A16 which will serve both the new homes and the stadium has already been constructed, and work has now commenced on the main distributor road through the development, which will provide access from both the A16 and the B1397 London Road.

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “The Quadrant is the most significant new development in Boston for many years and as a Lincolnshire developer we are extremely proud to be delivering it.

“As well as providing a range of high-quality new homes to meet local demand, The Quadrant will deliver an impressive new community stadium, commercial premises and food store for the town, creating new jobs and providing a major boost to the local economy.

“During the construction phase we will be using local suppliers and contractors, providing a further benefit to local businesses.

“As a developer which is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, the site will be inspected regularly throughout the construction process to ensure that we are maintaining the very highest standards in site presentation, health and safety and interaction with the community.

“In order to create a high-quality and attractive development where people are proud to live, we have carefully designed the homes at The Quadrant to reflect the characteristics of surrounding Lincolnshire villages, using a mix of materials and design features inspired by local architecture.

“We are pleased to have commenced work on the first two phases of the development and we look forward to seeing the development take shape in the coming months.”

A Ground Breaking Day at the Breaking Ground Ceremony in Boston

10 May 2016

Work has now started on the first phase of The Quadrant in Boston after Peter Bedford, Leader of the Boston Borough Council took the controls of an excavator to formally commence work on the site at yesterday’s Breaking Ground Ceremony.

The project is set to include around 500 new homes; a new community stadium for Boston United; a hotel; leisure and retail units,  as well as the first section of a new distributor road.

Peter Bedford told local reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire: “As far as Boston is concerned, this first section of distributor road is absolutely essential for the whole life of the town.”

He went on to add that working with developers like Chestnut Homes, “is the only way that roads like this will be delivered these days.”

Matt Warman, local MP for Boston and Skegness also supports the work, which needs to be carried out for the improved infrastructure for his constituents in Boston. He told BBC Radio Lincolnshire, “When we look back in maybe 10 years or so, we will identify this as the beginning of the distributor road that is finally delivering a project that Boston has been talking about for literally generations.”

Speaking at the event, David Newton, Managing Director at Chestnut Homes said, “We are absolutely delighted to see work on this development commence, and is the culmination of 13 years work.

“It’s been a real journey, and is only by all parties working together with a common goal that has lead us to this point today and we’re delighted to invite Peter Bedford over to break the ground for us to officially commence the work on The Quadrant.”

The construction of the roundabout on the A16 will take between 24 and 26 weeks to complete. Chestnut Homes have worked closely with Lincolnshire County Council and the civil engineering contractor, Daniel Charles Construction Ltd to plan the works to try to ensure minimum disruption to traffic flows.

The development of the housing and the stadium is hoped to start around September / October 2016.

Breaking Ground Ceremony initiates work at The Quadrant

09 May 2016

Work will start on the first phase of The Quadrant in Boston on Monday 9th May following a Breaking Ground Ceremony.

The Ceremony will initiate work on the new roundabout on the A16, which will provide access to The Quadrant and the new Community Stadium for Boston United.

The construction works will take approximately 26 weeks to complete, however careful planning has taken place to ensure that both lanes of the A16 will remain open during the majority of that period.

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We are delighted that at long last work is commencing on Q1, the first phase of The Quadrant project, however we are also acutely aware that this is a very busy main route into the town. We have worked very closely with Lincolnshire County Council and our contractors to ensure that the works are carried out in a manner that will minimise impact on traffic flows as far as practical. As much work as possible will be completed on each side of the A16 before any traffic signalling is actually required, and at this stage we anticipate using traffic lights for only a two week period during September. At all other times, we will aim to keep both lanes of the A16 open, although there will be a 30MPH restriction in place. Complete road closures will be required for the surfacing works; however these will take place overnight. Both we and the County Council will aim to keep everyone informed of progress, and any disruptions that are likely to occur. Clearly at peak times there may be some traffic build up, but would ask everyone to be patient and look to the longer term benefits of ‘The Quadrant project’.”

The Quadrant scheme is going ahead thanks in part to £4.75m of funding secured by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership via the Single Local Growth Fund.

David Dexter, Deputy Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, said “We are delighted that the Single Local Growth Fund is enabling the first phase of the Quadrant scheme in Boston to be delivered.”

“We have set out ambitious targets to grow the economy across Greater Lincolnshire and so it is encouraging that our vision for the local area has been immediately recognised and rewarded by central Government and is also matched by the commitment and confidence of private sector investors in bringing new development and employment opportunities forward.”

The first phase of The Quadrant delivers the first section of a potential distributor road network around the town, and work is already underway to try to ensure that the next phase is delivered as soon as possible.

Commenting on this, David Newton said: “For the whole Quadrant project to deliver maximum benefit for the town, we need to ensure that the next section of distributor road is delivered through Q2, the second phase of the Quadrant, and beyond. We are working with the County Council, Boston Borough Council, local MP Matt Warman, and Broadgate Homes to try to ensure the various sections of roads are delivered at the earliest opportunity. We have already held meetings with the Secretary of State for Transport, and the Housing Minister, and were very impressed by the close working relationship that has been formed between all parties. They are aware that government funding will also be required, and bids will be submitted at the appropriate times.”

It is hoped that work will start late summer on both the housing and the new Community Stadium at Q1 of The Quadrant.
