Peterborough City Council

Our team first advised Peterborough City Council in 2009 when we prepared the Peterborough Retail Study; and we were subsequently reappointed to prepare the Peterborough Retail Study Update.

The Retail Study Update provides a comprehensive review of the need for new retail development across the city to form part of the Council’s evidence base for the city wide retail strategy. The outputs informed the preparation of the Peterborough City Centre DPD. Using the results of new household telephone survey data, we were able to identify the scale and nature of additional retail provision that may be appropriate across the city up to 2026.

Members of our team have also previously provided independent retail planning advice to the Council in relation to a number of foodstore development proposals across the city.
