Homes for Ukraine


Yesterday marks one year since the launch of the ~#HomesForUkraine scheme and it’s now one of the fastest and largest visa programmes in UK history.   Thanks to the generosity of thousands of people here in the UK, over 116,000 Ukrainians have arrived safely in the UK under the scheme, including 87 in Boston.  Across the country, extraordinary people are transforming the lives of those who have fled the war in Ukraine, by offering a place in their own home and support in their community. As the war continues, the people of Ukraine still need our help as they find their feet here in the UK.   Could you join the thousands already involved and offer a safe place to stay?

Mini Wind Turbines


The South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership has facilitated a UK first with the installation of two innovative and cost-effective mini #wind turbines.  The 2m high wind turbines have been installed at FreshLinc in Spalding and at the end of Skegness Pier.

Businesses from across the Partnership area, including in Boston, are encouraged to find out more about the scheme which aims to revolutionise how electricity is generated.  Cllr Nigel Welton, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Economic Development at Boston Borough Council, saw both of Lincolnshire turbines being installed.  He said: "Ventum has landed in the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership. There have been many people working hard behind the scenes to bring this to our region and it is fantastic to see them now up and running.  "Businesses are wanting solutions to be more energy efficient and reduce costs so it's fantastic we have collectively been able to make this happen. I am looking forward to seeing what green projects this will lead to in the future to drive investment, support businesses and growth."  Read more:

Levelling Up Questions & Answers

Q: Is the bus station moving?

A: No. There are no proposals to move the bus station at the current time. During the later phases of the development, the aspiration will be to consider the future of the bus station which could include regeneration of it and improvement of the facilities, or alternatives. Any proposals for this will be consulted upon at the time.

Q: Please explain where these ideas have come from?

A: These ideas have been part of a long-standing vision for this area. Since 2018, various options have been developed, in order to attempt to access funding opportunities from the Town Deal and Levelling Up funds as examples. The proposals align with the funding requirements; and the aspiration for the improvement of the area.

Q: I have used the wheelchair swing in Central Park, will the new areas include equipment for wheelchair/special needs children to use i.e. roundabouts etc all in the name of inclusion & not just left on the side lines to watch other children playing?

A: These points are noted, and will be considered moving forward. The aim of the public space is to create an accessible space for all.
