The Quadrant is an excellent opportunity to bring much-needed homes, a new Community Stadium, shops and restaurants to Boston; creating hundreds of jobs and improving traffic flows around the town.

The feedback received during the consultation period last year has helped us to develop the proposal for Q1 as follows:
- The proposed pedestrian/cycle link into the Q1 site from Clarke Court has been removed following concerns from local residents.
- An enhanced landscape belt to the north of the proposed leisure units alongside the A16 has been added to the plans, to minimise any potential impacts on adjacent residents on this part of Tytton Lane East.
- Homes will be limited to two storeys along all boundaries adjacent to existing homes.
- Comments received reinforced our opinion that the Q1 design should reflect the semi-rural nature of Wyberton village.
- Land will potentially be gifted to Wyberton Playing Fields Association to provide an additional football pitch for the local community.
- Alterations have been made to the Community Stadium design details to reflect feedback from BUFC supporters.
In addition, in response to concerns from local residents about the potential for on-street parking by users of the Community Stadium, we have committed to working with the local police and highways authority to potentially implement parking restrictions on match days on roads immediately adjacent to the stadium.
Finally, there will be only access for emergency vehicles into the Community Stadium site from Tytton Lane East, and pedestrian access on match days. This entrance will not be open to other vehicles at any time.

The second phase of the project, Q2, will include the development of a c200 acre (90ha) sustainable mixed-use scheme immediately south west of the town centre off Chain Bridge Road. Q2 will be likely to include a marina, housing; open spaces; retail and leisure units; community facilities, and employment land.
Plans for Q2 are in the very early stages and local input is needed to develop the ideas further. Read more about Q2 here.
Both phases of The Quadrant will deliver the first part of a much-needed distributor road network, that may ultimately run from the A16 to the A52, making it easier to get around Boston.
Q1 is a well located site that offers
- Excellent transport links to the town of Boston, as well as to the south of the county
- The opportunity to link the A16 to London Road, delivering the first part of a distributor road network around this part of the town
- A suitable site for a secure and sustainable home for the Community Stadium and its extensive community and education programmes
- The opportunity to deliver a range of market housing; plus much needed affordable housing
- The potential opportunity to create a safe haven in this part of the town, in case of flooding
- Suitable scale and diversity to enable development to create the investment needed for the relocation of Boston United Football Club
- A high profile development providing an attractive entrance on the southern gateway to the town
