Peter Bedford, Council Leader at Boston Borough Council said "Our shared vision is to establish a vibrant and attractive town centre, with high quality traditional shop fronts and restored buildings. With the help of owners and businesses we expect that the town will have a much increased attraction for visitors seeking both leisure and retail, will improve the quality of life of local residents and assist with investor confidence, something we think is very much needed at the present time."
