A spokesman for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities said: “In Boston, we are investing £13m in regeneration and improving access to community sports facilities, including £7m for Boston Leisure Centre and £3.2m to complete Boston United’s community sports complex which supports young people and will include 30 affordable homes.

“Alongside this, we are investing over £1.5m for projects to support community groups and boost tourism and £2.8m for Boston College to acquire and develop the Haven Wharf site to open a digital and creative campus.”

“All the Levelling Up Partnerships will be subject to business case,” the spokesman added.
