Members of the public can view new homes at The Quadrant in Boston this weekend.

A new development which will bring 500 homes and a new football stadium to Boston is set to open its doors to the public this weekend.

The Quadrant, which is being built by Chestnut Homes on land between Tytton Lane East and the A16, launches on Friday 2nd February with a special preview event which will be the first opportunity for visitors to explore the development’s new show village of four properties.

Today (Thursday) councillors and other VIPs had a preview of the show homes.

Once completed, The Quadrant will comprise 500 homes, commercial premises, a food store and a new stadium for Boston United Football Club.

The first two phases will consist of 147 homes, 62 of which will be provided as affordable housing.

The scheme benefited from £4.75 million of money from the Government's Growth Deal which was negotiated by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.​

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “The Quadrant is a high-profile development which people have known about for some time, so it is a real milestone for us to be able to open the doors and invite people in for the very first time.

“We’re proud to be creating this new community for Boston, and we look forward to welcoming the first visitors this weekend.”

Construction of a new roundabout on the A16 which will serve both the new homes and the stadium has already finished, and work is now under way on the main distributor road through the development, which will provide access from both the A16 and the B1397 London Road.​
