The Peterborough Investment Partnership (a joint venture between the council and the Lucent Strategic Land Fund) has announced this week that it plans to submit an outline planning application for the Fletton Quays site in a couple of months. The PIP aims to bring new investment into Peterborough and kick-start development on several key city centre sites. Ultimately the partnership will help to support the growth of Peterborough by bringing new jobs, retail, housing and leisure facilities to the city. A new beginning for an exciting project to regenerate an area, close to the river, that should be buzzing with activity and we hope that this announcement will be the start of turning that vision into a reality. The job of the partnership is to obtain planning permission on Fletton Quays, and other future sites, and then for it to be sold to a developer to build it out.
