The £120 million Fletton Quays regeneration scheme’s been given the green light.
Peterborough City Council’s Planning Committee has approved an outline planning application to regenerate 20 acres of derelict brownfield land on the south bank
The planning application was submitted by Peterborough Investment Partnership (PIP) which is a joint venture by Lucent Strategic Land Fund and Peterborough City Council. PIP aims to help support the sustained growth and development of local communities across Peterborough by creating new jobs, retail, housing and leisure facilities.
Officials say the long-awaited scheme will help to bring the river front to life and has been designed to make the most of the outstanding views across the river towards the cathedral. It will include:
* 280 high-quality apartments, providing bespoke city centre living opportunities and introducing a new community in the heart of the development
* Up to 160 bed hotel
* Restaurant, leisure and retail facilities
* 166,000 square feet of prime office accommodation
* New and improved cycle and pedestrian links along the south bank
* The creation of public spaces which will help to establish a new neighbourhood in this part of the city
* A dedicated wildlife area
* Refurbished Grade II Listed railway sheds. The iconic Mitchell bas relief will also be returned to public display by incorporating it into western elevation of the car park.
