City Council and English Partnerships, the government agency for regeneration
and development, have funded the site - www.peterborough-england.org.uk
- and CD, jointly.
Martin, City Council Chief Executive said: "All forward-looking businesses
and public services understand that their future depends upon effective use of
new technology and electronic communication. This new CD Rom and website
underlines Peterborough's activity in this area and our determination to promote
the city to a global audience".
Griffiths from English Partnerships added: "The website and CD have the
capability to communicate essential information about Peterborough to many more
people more cost-effectively than would be the case with traditional printed
is a significant step forward for Peterborough, and possibly the first stage in
an expanding electronic communications network serving the whole of the city.

has heaps of potential to draw new businesses here. Some might comment that it
offers a particularly rosy view of our city, but I personally agree with the
sentiment of the site - Peterborough is a great place to live and work. All too
often we knock it and I've seen many a complaint on the discussion forums on
peterborough.net. For once we have some positive action and it's action that has
the potential to reach the rest of the world.
