"Fletton Quays" entered by ELG Planning and Peterborough City Council
Fletton Quays has long been an under-utilised, derelict brownfield site on the banks of the River Nene in Peterborough's city centre. In 2015, Peterborough Investment Partnership brought forward plans for a £120 million development to regenerate the 6.4 hectare site. The submitted plans included 280 high-quality homes, 166,000ft² of office space, a multi-storey car park, a landmark hotel, and restaurant and leisure space to further improve the city's and local area's night-time offering. New cycle and pedestrian links, public realm and a dedicated ecology area were also to be incorporated. Two Grade II listed railway sheds on site will be refurbished as part of the project, with the bigger engine shed being incorporated into the larger of two office schemes.
Before submission of the planning application, the project team collaborated with stakeholders to address a number of constraints at the site.
Construction began in late 2016 and is due to finish in 2019. Fletton Quays has been designed to have a positive and long-lasting impact on the city centre and Peterborough more widely, attracting new businesses and residents to the city, boosting the economy and contributing to an improved environment for all to enjoy. Today, a multi-decade dream is becoming a reality.
