Chinese VIPs See Peterborough's Growth Potential

A party of senior civil servants from the Ministry of Land & Resources of the People's Republic of China has spent a day in Peterborough to see how the city promotes and manages growth.

The series of lectures and tours was organised by Greater Peterborough Investment Agency (GPIA). It included talks on the role of the GPIA in attracting inward investment, the history and projected growth of Hampton, and the process by which the city council puts together its local plan.

The Chinese then toured various parts of the city, including the established townships of Orton, Bretton and Werrington which were built under the authority of the Peterborough Development Corporation. They went on to see the current developments at Hampton, Peterborough's newest township, which is being built by the private sector.

Steve Beresford of GPIA said: "The Chinese were here as guests of the Cambridge International Land Institute which asked us to arrange a day in Peterborough.

"The visitors wanted to see how an old city could accommodate the growth which we have actively sought in recent decades. They also wanted to learn how we brought the derelict land of the brick clay pits back into productive use as the site for Hampton".
