Now is the time to show them a city of opportunity
It is far from make or break, but today does herald something of a landmark for Peterborough.
The much vaunted and talked about masterplan – charting a £1billion regeneration of the city centre – is a thing of the past, largely thanks to the recession and years of inactivity.
So now it is time to move on, and hopefully the growth summit at the great Northern Hotel will issue a signal to investors that the city is indeed one full of opportunity.
The glossy brochure for those attending comes with the slogan “Peterborough . . . today’s city, tomorrow’s growth”.
There have been many slogans and brochures before them – now let us see progress.
This must be a new dawn for the economic growth and development – which has been long awaited and is much needed.
