Peterborough is buzzing with change making it the perfect time to join us. Growth is high on our agenda and we’re attracting a range of high quality companies and investors to build on every area of business in the city.
We’re revitalising our day and night time culture by populating the newly revamped Cathedral Square and surrounding area with stylish restaurants, bars and cafes.
Our key business sectors are thriving and we’re committed to drawing in fresh knowledge, innovation and inward investment to firmly establish Peterborough as the right environment for business. Change in the city has been in the pipeline for a long time, but it’s now beginning to take shape – physically and economically.
A major £11m enhancement programme at the heart of Peterborough has finished with Cathedral Square being transformed into a new, energetic piazza where people can eat, shop and relax. The centre piece of the new scheme is a grid of fountains framed by the remarkable backdrop of the beautiful Norman Cathedral, the city’s Guildhall and St John’s church. The area also features a stylish green space, where people can enjoy peace and tranquillity.
The new space is already proving to be an attraction with businesses, new restaurants, retailers and professional agencies now opening nearby, including Nando’s, Patisserie Valerie, TK Maxx and Primark. Royal Sun Alliance, Tesco, Pandora, Virgin Media and Van Hage are just some of the companies to either come to Peterborough or expand their operations recently, and major retailers such as Cult and Schuh have opened in Queensgate shopping centre.
Peterborough’s business credentials are further boosted by the presence of high-profile companies such as BGL and Coca-cola Enterprises who have found locating some of their company operations to the city, extremely beneficial.
