Stunning riverside living in the heart of Peterborough

Peterborough Investment Partnership’s (PIP) first site to be brought forward is Fletton Quays in the centre of Peterborough.

With planning consent granted in late 2015, work on the site was able to begin in early 2017. The site is 6.4 hectares of prime riverfront development land located to the south of the city centre between the River Nene and the Peterborough – March railway line.

The site is made up of derelict land and vacant buildings and enjoys a prestigious location on the banks of the River Nene. It has outstanding views of Peterborough Cathedral and is close to the city’s major road and rail connections.

It is also a short walk to the city’s main commercial, shopping and recreational areas. The Key Theatre and The Embankment areas are located just across the river. Redevelopment of this neglected quarter will build on the exciting development plans already in place for the city centre and help Peterborough to thrive.

The proposed development will deliver much-needed homes, offices and a new leisure offering on the banks of the River Nene in the centre of Peterborough.

The plans also include the refurbishment of the existing listed rail buildings and their incorporation into the scheme, providing a link to the heritage of the city while also meeting the community’s future need

The scheme includes:

  • More than 350 high-quality riverside apartments
  • Cycle and pedestrian links along the south bank
  • New public spaces offering views across the river towards the cathedral
  • A dedicated wildlife area
  • The refurbishment of the listed rail sheds

The approved scheme includes plans for:

  • Up to 160 bed hotel
  • Restaurant, leisure and retail opportunities
  • Creation of hundreds of jobs during and post construction

Peterborough City Council has independently purchased the former mill that is adjacent to the site.

The building will be turned in to an arts and culture hub for the city in a £120m scheme as part of the city centre’s regeneration.

Quays Ale – ‘here’s to a riverside dream’

A brewery moving to Peterborough toasted their relocation by forging links with the growth of the city.

Mile Tree Brewery’s Quays beer was on tap at the CAMRA Peterborough Beer Festival 2017 and came about due to an association with PIP.
