Repurpose the Market Place to encourage people to visit Boston day & night. Demolish the Marks & Spencer building and create an area on that site to house the current Wednesday & Saturday markets. Also erect wooden type chalet huts for independent craft/food companies to sell their goods (such as York/Notts Christmas Markets) which would then create a natural flow for people to shop in Pescod Square/Oldrids. As the town has adequate car parking elsewhere, pedestrianise the Market Place which would allow cafes/pubs to have more space for tables/chairs outside. Develop a café culture that would encourage other major restaurant chains to come into the town and create a vibrant night-time economy. As per other suggestions the former Poundstretcher shop houses the former Scala Theatre & could be refurbished and allocated for either community use/office accommodation/health appointments/MP & Councillors surgeries or a Cosy Club type restaurant/pub (similar to the one in Lincoln).
