'Head Start' for Peterborough in growth corridor

Business | Press | News

Peterborough, whose inclusion in the government’s M11 growth corridor was announced in February, could secure a head start over other areas because of its enthusiasm for development, according to Minister of State for Regeneration and Regional Development Lord Jeff Rooker.

During a visit to Peterborough this week (Tuesday 20 April) Lord Rooker said: “I am very impressed with the attitude of people. The council wants to see action pretty quickly. It means the city can get a head start on other areas in the growth corridor.”

Peterborough City Council, with support from national regeneration agency English Partnerships and the East of England Development Agency, has already prepared a city centre regeneration master plan covering development proposals in 10 opportunity areas.

The council is awaiting government approval for the appointment of an urban regeneration company to manage the master plan proposals, which will generate investment of £750 million.

Lord Rooker added: “The city has been very positive and we’ll make sure it gets the help it needs.”
