Positive feedback for stadium
22 December 2015
Congratulations to local woman Hayley Nixon, who has won the £100 prize draw for completing Chestnut Homes’ Sports and Community Stadium feedback survey.
The survey asked local people living in Wyberton and the surrounding areas for their feedback on the new Sports and Community Stadium, which will sit at the heart of Chestnut Homes’ major redevelopment project The Quadrant.
Respondents were asked what facilities they would like to see available, along with sports and leisure activities and if there is a need for other services, training, meeting and event room, and more.
Nearly 600 people completed the survey, with 91% stating either Yes or Maybe to using the new stadium. 265 people said they would use Help and Advice Services, with 242 stating learning and development services would be beneficial.
“We’d like to thank everyone who completed the survey. Over 91% of respondents stated they would use the stadium, which demonstrates a real need for the facility in the area. This feedback will now be used by Chestnut Homes to help support a bid for funding to Sport England for the new stadium. The survey results are important, not only for this bid, but also to ensure we have an up-to-date picture on the kind of facilities people locally would like us to provide,” says Chestnut Homes Managing Director, David Newton.
The redevelopment project will see the creation of 500 homes, new shops and restaurants, along with the new stadium which will also be home to Boston United Football Club and their community sports programme United in the Community. £4.75m in grant funding and £3.5m in development finance for The Quadrant has already been secured through the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, with further funding bids for the sports stadium being submitted shortly
