The Vine Central Library and Goods Shed

A refurbished Central Library (city centre hub) and Goods Shed (communal food and beverage hall) in Fletton Quays are proposed to deliver The Vine for Peterborough. This replaces the previous plan to use the former TK Maxx building in Bridge Street.

The change of approach to deliver The Vine across two sites was proposed at the Peterborough Towns Fund board meeting on Wednesday 10 May 2023.

The Government provided the city with £13million to deliver the scheme.

A full refurbishment will take place at the Central Library. This will transform the 1980s building into a light and airy modern library. It will be complete with a thriving community hub which will also deliver a business / education offering.

Work is currently taking place to scope out how the space will be used. We envisage visitors being able to enjoy a range of activities and services such as learning new skills, browsing books, socialising with a coffee and more.

The Vine will provide a place to work and visit, drawing footfall to the city centre and supporting the local economy.
