Boston set to become Levelling Up Partnership Town following Budget

Boston Borough Council has announced that, following yesterday’s Spring Budget, the town is to become a Levelling Up Partnership Town, being led by by the Department for Levelling Up Housing and Communities.

Government investment worth £400 million is being invested to create 20 of the new Levelling Up Partnerships, with the aim of driving growth, unlocking barriers and attracting inward investment to ensure that communities get solutions that benefit them the most.

The council will be working alongside the Levelling Up Department and their partners to identify ways that growth can be accelerated to benefit the residents and businesses of Boston. By accelerating this growth, the town can further build on the success of other funding that has been secured by the council. This funding includes:

  • £21.9 million to deliver regeneration schemes through the Town Deal
  • Levelling Up funding of £14.8 million to get going with the Rosegarth Square plan
  • £2.62 million allocated through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Rural England Prosperity Fund.

Councillor Paul Skinner, Boston Borough Council’s Leader, said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Boston as we continue to drive forward investment, create jobs and improve the lives of our residents.

“The Council as part of of the South and East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership is not afraid to be ambitious and we have a proven track record of collaborative working which delivers new opportunities with partners which will have a lasting impact on our communities.

“This opportunity to work even more closely with the DLUHC and other government departments will mean we can really address issues which have historically prevented regeneration and growth.

“Today’s announcement is a fantastic opportunity for the town and the wider benefit for the Partnership, Members and officers from the Economic Growth team are looking forward to working even more closely with DLUHC to make this happen.”
