Now is the time to show them a city of op­por­tu­nity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

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.
