City centre development framework

Over the next 15 years, our population will grow from around 200,000 to 235,000. That’s an increase of over 17 per cent.

We are literally building the future. The infrastructure and landmarks our children and our children’s children will come to see as iconic to our city’s look and feel. That’s why it’s important we get it right.

LDA Design is a Peterborough based landscape architect company, which specialises in redeveloping urban areas so they work best for the people that use them. They have previously designed the Olympic Park in London and the University of London's pioneering new campus.

The development framework - or blueprint - is how we think our city should look like in 2035.

It’s a bold design, packed full of retail, leisure and entertainment features. But it’s one which will help secure our future as a larger city destination, boosting tourism and opportunities for local residents.

Please take some time to have a look.
