Meet this week’s com­pany car driver

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness -

Q: City MP Ste­wart Jack­son has urged city plan­ners to res­ur­rect the £450 mil­lion North West­gate devel­op­ment. Do you think they will heed his words? A: It is hard to judge how the lo­cal plan­ners may re­act. How­ever, from a per­sonal point of view, it would seem like an ex­cel­lent ini­tia­tive. I am sure the town would ben­e­fit from the re­gen­er­a­tion and the com­mer­cial im­pact of such a project. Q: Do you wel­come the Govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to end Home In­for­ma­tion Packs (HIPs)? A: We wel­come the Govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to end the Home In­for­ma­tion Packs. This seemed like a com­plete waste of money that added no value to the process what­so­ever. On a much sad­der note, my daugh­ter only three weeks ago paid her fee to en­able her to sell her prop­erty only to find that it is no longer re­quired. How many oth­ers are out there who have been af­fected by this change and should they get a Q: Do you think the mayor will be suc­cess­ful in his bid to at­tract new jobs to Peter­bor­ough? A: This all de­pends on how com­mit­ted he is to the process. It will take some vi­sion, en­ergy and tenac­ity. I sin­cerely hope he has these qual­i­ties and also the timescale needed to see the re­sults. Q: Are you in favour of the elec­toral re­form plans re­cently out­lined in the Queens’ speech? A: Per­son­ally I am to­tally dis­il­lu­sioned with the po­lit­i­cal scene at the moment. How­ever, maybe the elec­toral re­form will pro­vide a fairer and more bal­anced sys­tem. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see if these changes are ever im­ple­mented.
