Business leaders urged to shape Peterborough's future

Business | Press | News

North West Cambridgeshire MP Sir Brian Mawhinney has urged Peterborough business people to take the lead in shaping the city’s future development.

In a stirring address to guests at Greater Peterborough Investment Agency’s (GPIA) annual review presentation Sir Brian declared: “It is the private sector that is the engine of the city, that generates the wealth and that has a history of being innovative and entrepreneurial.

Gloria Milne presents GPIA’s annual review

“This is your city and you help to shape its prosperity, its future, its attractiveness not only as a place to do business but also as a place in which your employees work and live and raise families.”

Greater Peterborough Investment Agency chief executive Gloria Milne focused on the benefits of working in partnership with organisations that help promote the city to a range of audiences.

She said English Partnerships has contributed financial support and the expertise of its people in developing a new advertising campaign and the East of England Development Agency is working with the city council and the Prince’s Foundation on South Bank redevelopment scheme. Both organisations are also working on a ‘masterplan’ for the cohesive development of the city centre.

Following the launch of the new advertising campaign and a re-designed website, GPIA attracted its highest monthly total of relocation enquiries in September since April 1999. A total of 30 companies contacted the agency about the possibility of moving their business into Peterborough or expanding their activities here.

The www.positivelypeterborough.org website attracts around 8,000 visitors each month with over 40 per cent visiting the commercial property pages on the site.

GPIA is also working with Peterborough Environment City Trust and the UK Centre for Economic and Environmental Development to promote the city’s reputation as a leader in environmental technologies.

Mrs Milne added: “We are all part of the partnership that is Greater Peterborough. We have great opportunities and through hard work and ambition can make Peterborough an outstanding city.”
