Station Quarter

Peterborough Station is a vital rail intersection on the East Coast Main Line. Over 5 million passengers use the station every year with growth of 3% per annum over the next 5 years.

There is a major opportunity to create a high-quality user experience that will transform visitor impressions of Peterborough and boost the city’s potential as a business location.

The vision shared by Network Rail, LNER, the Council and Combined Authority is to create a state-of-the-art station gateway building with a new office park and surrounding retail facilities.

North Westgate

This city centre site close to the station is ideally placed for commuters who want to make the most of the 39-minute train service to London. North Westgate has plenty of space for commercial and residential premises.

The ambition is to support city centre based, residential lifestyles providing excellent access to retail, cultural and leisure amenities. Planning policy supports mixed-use redevelopment including a range of retail, employment, housing, office and leisure uses, which integrate effectively with the existing retail area.

Northminster

The vision for this site is to create major residential-led, mixed-use development within an enhanced public realm. The site has potential for over 150 dwellings and a new multi storey car park. Development should protect and enhance local historic assets, including the Cathedral Precincts and Peterscourt. The council will support proposals to improve or relocate the market.

Rivergate

Rivergate provides an important link between the city centre, the River, Embankment and Fletton Quays. There are opportunities for further redevelopment with housing and independent retail, food and beverage use.

University

From 2022 Peterborough will become home to a new business and technology focussed university with a curriculum geared to high growth sectors of the economy. The campus will expand to accommodate over 12,500 students by 2030.

Embankment

The embankment presents exciting opportunities for major multiuse commercial sport/leisure/culture facilities and activities, and when combined with planned pedestrian and cycle links with Middleholme, the two sites will be well connected to the river, the railway station and the city centre.

Middleholme

Middleholme is identified as an area for future residential development with a high design quality. Combined with the embankment, it presents exciting opportunities for major multiuse commercial sport/leisure/culture facilities and activities, with planned pedestrian and cycle links, providing connections to the river, the railway station and the city centre.
