Strategic Alliance with Boston Borough Council won't proceed at this time

June 11, 2020

THE proposed Strategic Alliance - a plan that would have saved Boston Borough Council and East Lindsey District Council £15.4m over the next 10 years through a shared workforce - will not be progressed at this time.

Whilst East Lindsey District Council strongly supported the proposal when it met last night, Boston Borough Council withdrew the item from its agenda after a number of hours of debate.

The Leader of East Lindsey District Council, Councillor Craig Leyland, said: "It is disappointing that Boston Borough Council didn't agree to enter into a strategic alliance. East Lindsey District Council is a strong, stable and successful organisation and we will continue to work hard to improve services to our communities, whilst continuing to explore further partnership working opportunities that add value to what we do."
