A step in the right di­rec­tion for city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

THE tough de­ci­sions promised be­fore and dur­ing the re­cent emer­gency bud­get could not have come at a worse time for the fledg­ling Uni­ver­sity Cen­tre Peter­bor­ough.

At a time when it is still look­ing to es­tab­lish it­self here in the city, cuts could have been dev­as­tat­ing.

Hap­pily, though, it looks as though the op­po­site is the case and a new stream of fund­ing could see the num­ber of stu­dents here grow by 200 – quite a big leap.

Hope­fully that will just be the start, as it has of­ten been said a uni­ver­sity is vi­tal to the fu­ture growth of the city – with a ready made de­gree-stan­dard work­force key to at­tract­ing new busi­nesses.
