Peterborough Civic Society

Plaque 16    Stuart House, City Road
The Peterborough Development Corporation was established in 1968 to guide the expansion of the City as part of the government's proposals to transfer London's overspill population to a second generation of new towns. The Corporation had its original office at Peterscourt (see Plaque 9), then in Touthill Close, opposite, and finally in Stuart House. The Corporation ceased to exist in 1988. Stuart House was built in 1982/84 and its name, together with the adjoining offices, Aragon Court, preserve the names of Royal burials in the Cathedral (Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots and Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII).
