Market Place to be spruced up with flower tubs and bollards
WORK has begun on installing bollards and plant tubs in Boston's Market Place.
A number of removable planters and bollards are being put in place to enhance and clarify parking areas and pedestrian areas, helping to keep the crossings clear, and reserving a space for smaller activities.
By using removable items the use of the space can be adjusted to suit separate events, such as the May Fair, while access for deliveries can be made through the removable bollards.
Affected businesses will have keys in order to be able to remove the bollards for deliveries.

Councillor Derek Richmond, Boston Borough Council's portfolio holder for the town centre, said: "It has been appreciated by both the borough and county council that the public have had concerns over the Market Place.
"We have been working in partnership to find a way of altering the perception of this area.
"This may not be the final solution. As with all projects, there are always teething problems, but it is our hope that this will go some way to addressing concerns without detracting from the open aspect and shared use of the Market Place while maintaining the historic and heritage attractiveness, which was intended at the onset of this project."
Lincolnshire County Council's executive councillor for highways and transportation Councillor Richard Davies said: "The market place plays a very important part in the history of both Boston and Lincolnshire.
"It has always been popular with local residents and traders, and has been an asset to the town for more than 500 years now.
"This means that it is vital that we get this area running effectively for pedestrians, motorists, traders and visitors.
"I hope that these changes will fine tune this fantastic area and make a real difference to the people who use it."
