Boston Community Stadium – design description

The plan foresees a completely new stadium for Boston United as part of much larger scheme that involves 500 new apartments, restaurants and shops. Overall value of the project is to stand at £100 million, mostly to be financed by Chestnut homes, company owned by United chairman David Newton.

The stadium is to hold 4,329 people, of whom 1,747 would be seated at the western main grandstand. Much lower terraces on three remaining sides would hold 1,000 (east) and 700 on both ends. Should the club be promoted, it may be upgraded to league requirements without much effort.

The western grandstand would also comprise extensive office, conference and educational facilities. While banqueting suites and skyboxes are to improve the club's revenue, classrooms should serve the community.

The stadium itself is estimated to cost some £5.5 million, of which some 2 million could be received in football grants, while the remainder would be covered from new homes.
