Established in January 2015, Peterborough Investment Partnership (PIP) is an innovative partnership between Peterborough City Council and IAGH3. By enabling the development of surplus land in the Council’s ownership, PIP is helping to support and sustain the growth and regeneration of Peterborough by creating new jobs, retail, housing and leisure facilities, and by generating reinvestment back into the city.

A collaborative partnership

PIP works like a magnet for developers, many of whom prefer to deal direct with the private sector. The Council invests its surplus land and shares its knowledge of the needs of its communities, while IAGH3 invests capital and the professional skills of its team to secure planning permission. PIP then liaises with potential developers and purchasers for individual sites. PIP also has commercial expertise and existing relationships with developers and investors to take potential schemes through the planning process. Longer-term, there could be additional business benefits with future opportunities for PIP to purchase sites that are currently not in Council ownership.


IAGH3 brings investment and commercial expertise. They are involved in multiple joint ventures and co-investments with financial institutions, local authorities and statutory bodies. They focus on large scale regeneration projects across the UK incorporating land and infrastructure delivery for residential and mixed use development.  

Peterborough City Council

Peterborough City Council is a unitary authority providing all local government services to the people of Peterborough and its surrounding villages. They have strong strategic and political links, as well as significant local and regional knowledge, helping to identify the needs of local communities. The council is able to identify and assemble sites that will have the most impact once regenerated.
