Peterborough - The place to be in the Eastern Region


Peterborough is poised to become THE place to be in the Eastern Region, city council chief executive Paul Martin has told a group of local business leaders.

Addressing a meeting of the Greater Peterborough Investment Agency's Property Forum - which brings together property developers, agents, landlords and others with an interest in the property market - he outlined plans to make Peterborough a better place in which to work, live and do business.

"Peterborough is on the way up," he told the meeting. "The city has an opportunity to be an outstanding location in terms of quality of life, business and inward investment."

He outlined the city council's plans to tackle a whole range of issues - from crime reduction to traffic management - which will help to turn the vision into a reality. However, he warned, the city council could not achieve much without the help of its partners.

"We need to work in partnership with other organisations - such as the police and the health service - as well as with the wider community and, in particular, local businesses," he said.

And he promised the local business community: "We want to be a council that it is easy for a business to do business with. We want to be an organisation that listens and is attuned to the needs of business, that works for inward investment and business expansion."

He paid tribute to the 'can-do, problem-solving' attitude of the Greater Peterborough Investment Agency which spearheads the city's drive to attract companies to move into Peterborough and promised that the city council would move towards adopting a similar philosophy.

"Above all, we need to work together and to share a common belief in the future of Peterborough," he said.
