The project is expected to bring more people to the town to live, work and shop.
Areas for improvement include ‘healing the High Street’, regenerated transport links as well as a contemporary housing development.
Neil Kempster, from Chestnut Homes and Chair of the Board for the Boston Town Deal said: “Skills are one of the key things, making sure we improve skills within the town. But pride of place is one of the really big themes. Boston has a great cultural heritage with some fantastic buildings.
“The marketplace is a great centre for the town with a history dating back many centuries. It’s got St Botolph’s Church, the ‘Stump’, which is the tallest parish church in in the country.”
Other places being regenerated are Shodfriars, an attractive historic building, the town library, and the Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex.
The Boston Town Deal Board is made up of councillors, local professional leads, MP for Boston and Skegness Matt Warman, and local school leads.
Councillor Paul Skinner, Leader of Boston Borough Council and member of the Board said: “I’m really enthusiastic about this because it brings other people in… I think the government has been quite good in what they’ve done…. it brings all the people that you’d want to actually create things.”
Councillor Skinner said that £2.5million will be spent on the Geoff Moulder Leisure Centre alone.
Boston locals had a chance in selecting which parts of the town would receive funding, and the Town Deal Board has made a commitment to net-zero carbon emissions for all new developments.
