Weston are highly regarded for the quality of their accommodation, and have already invested in Peterborough with the development of The Gables, a development of premier family homes on the site of the old hospital. Weston will now work with PIP to achieve detailed planning consent for the residential phase, which will include agreeing the final appearance and materials of the finished scheme. Bob Weston, the company’s Chairman, said, “Weston Homes is delighted to continue our support for Peterborough and we are looking forward to being part of one of the most exciting developments in the city’s history. This will be a wonderful location for new apartments and will help breathe new life into the area.” PIP is also pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Nigel Desmond’s Bride Hall, one of the UK’s most respected developers, to deliver the office accommodation. Having worked with PIP during the design stage, and following the announcement that Peterborough City Council will be moving its headquarters to Fletton Quays, Bride Hall will develop the main new office building, renovate and refurbish a listed rail shed and build the supporting multi-storey car park. Nigel Desmond commented, “This is a great development for Peterborough that will create a vibrant extension to the city centre and brings the modern high quality office accommodation that the city badly needs. Bride Hall is proud to be able to work with PIP and PCC to help deliver Fletton Quays.” PIP is also well advanced with discussions for the hotel operator and a further announcement will be made shortly.
