One chance to make a first impression

Creating a sense of arrival with attractive (and well maintained) tree planting alongside main routes into town is a cost effective way to say this is a pleasant place to visit and live in. It creates some consistency, softens the impact of any ugly structures and in setting a high standard can encourage everyone to care more and there are studies that show a smart green-scape can also reduce crime. This would also supplement the Boston in Bloom work. Planting schemes could also improve retail and business parks helping attract new investment.

  1. I agree, there should be more tree planting schemes, where possible, on all the main routes into Boston. One is a condition for the Quadrant on the A16 but it has not yet been done.

    There are good Welcome to Boston Signs on the A52 at Frampton and on the A16 near to the Pilleys Lane junction but they are wanted on all the main routes into the Town.

    The old sign on the A16 south of the town at the Tytton Lane East junction is more appropriate as a village sign rather than a sign for a major heritage town.
