The Peterborough City Council have commissioned a feasibility study to determine the capacity for development on the northern embankment to the River Nene, Peterborough and WSP have now produced a 98-page document, which is available to download and view.
This feasibility study is an analysis of the relevant factors to assess the practicality of a proposed plan or project, and to ascertain the likelihood of completing that project successfully. In this instance, the project is defined as a masterplan for the embankment comprising the following key elements:
● Anglia Ruskin University Campus
● Riverside walkway and public realm
● Open green space
● Retained assets such as the Lido and Key Theatre
Potential site for Peterborough United FC Stadium
The study is co-funded in partnership between the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA), Peterborough United Properties (PUP), and Peterborough City Council (PCC).
Co-owner Stewart R Thompson said: “We are hoping this will help everybody obtain a full understanding of what we would like to accomplish in the community. By establishing an open book policy we commit to you to make relevant background papers and documents available as soon as possible. As always we encourage your questions, comments and interactions. We commit to transparency through this process.”
