The two year project built 123 homes for rent and shared ownership – all of which have been let or sold to local residents on the Housing Register.

The scheme cost £13m, to which Boston Borough Council, Greater Lincoln Local Economic Partnership (GLLEP) and Central Government (via the Homes and Community Agency) all contributed funds.

The scheme is all traditionally built, low density, two-storey accommodation.  It was built to withstand tidal flooding to standards set by the Environment Agency, by Lincoln based Lindum Construction, using local labour.

Miss Dedelyte, one of the new residents (pictured below with her two children), said she was delighted with her new home.

Cllr Cooper commented that “the scheme shows how Boston can be proactive in gaining Central Government funding to meet the local housing needs of residents”.

Anthony Riley, Group Director of Waterloo Housing Group added “this is one of a number of schemes we have built in the town (including Blue Street, Tytton Lane, Toot Lane and Abbey Road in Swineshead) with the help of Boston Borough Council.  Without their assistance and the help of the GLLEP and HCA, these homes would not be built.  Only by working together can we continue to provide new homes for people who are in housing need."
