Fletton Quays - stunning riverside living in the heart of Peterborough
Peterborough Investment Partnership’s (PIP) first site is Fletton Quays in the centre of Peterborough.
With planning consent granted in late 2015 for Fletton Quays, work on the site began in early 2017. The site is 6.4 hectares of prime riverfront development land, south of the city centre between the River Nene and the Peterborough-March railway line.
Previously composed of derelict land and vacant buildings, Fletton Quays enjoys a prestigious location on the banks of the River Nene, with outstanding views of Peterborough Cathedral. It 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 are just across the river. Redevelopment of this neglected quarter builds on exciting development plans already in place for the city centre and will help Peterborough to thrive. .
Fletton Quays includes:
- More than 350 high-quality riverside apartments
- Office space
- 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 Grade II listed Victorian rail sheds
The approved scheme includes plans for:
- Up to 160 bed hotel – planning permission has been submitted by the Hilton Garden Inn brand
- 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 aim is to convert the building in to an arts and culture hub, whilst also providing a new home for Metal Peterborough. Grant funding is being sought and success has already been achieved with £490,000 awarded from Arts Council England towards the redevelopment.
A major part of the site’s development has been the renovation of one of the Grade II listed Victorian rail sheds into the Peterborough City Council’s new office Sand Martin House. You can view our project book, Plot 5: A Transformation here!

Supporting the engineers of tomorrow
A group of trainee and graduate civil engineers from Royal HaskoningDHV visited the Peterborough Investment Partnership offices to learn about the Fletton Quays development. Royal HaskoningDHV’s UK head office is based in Bretton, Peterborough.
The Fletton Quays site will recognise the heritage of Peterborough and engineering by housing the former Bridge House mural, which celebrates this industry. Read more on the mural here.
Great to hear the thoughts and ideas of the engineers of tomorrow.
