Boston Heritage Strategy
Boston has a rich, diverse and unique heritage. Over the last five years this recognition, appreciation and understanding has grown as the value of both the built and natural environment is realised. As a result, there is now an increased need to put in place a strategy which sets out clear aims and objectives to understand, restore protect and share this heritage. The initial draft of a Heritage Strategy for Boston was circulated for consultation during autumn 2016. Based on feedback from this first stage of consultation, this document has now been amended and updated. A second and final stage of consultation is now open for feedback.
Boston Town Centre Conservation Area Management Plan 2017 - 2020
In October 2016, Boston Borough Council working in partnership with Heritage Lincolnshire submitted a Heritage Lottery Funded application for a Townscape Heritage Project for an area within Boston's Town Centre Conservation Area. This Management Plan has been produced to support the objectives of this project alongside its wider aims which is to provide a framework for managing change, identifying issues and suggesting measures to reduce existing or potential risk as well as offering proposals to enhance parts of the Conservation Area, which is currently listed on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register. This document is now available for consultation.
Boston Shop Front Guide
This guide will help owners and leaseholders of shops to produce high quality and well-designed schemes when considering an alteration to their building, particularly in relation to the unique and special character of the historic environment. It will also provide information on what Boston Borough Council aims to support and encourage through heritage led regeneration. The initial draft of the Shop Front Guide was circulated for consultation last year, with recommendation by Boston Borough Councilors to circulate for wider stakeholder approval. A second and final stage of consultation is now open for feedback.
