North Westgate mixed-use regeneration in Peterborough receives planning permission

Planning permission has been granted for the North Westgate mixed-use regeneration project in Peterborough, UK.

Peterborough Borough Council's Planning Committee met on 27 November to consider the revised planning application, submitted in July, and granted permission after its deliberations.

North Westgate will create a mixed-use urban development on a 4.6-hectare site lying adjacent to the Queensgate Centre, linking the latter with the station and residential housing to the north.

The development, which will transform a site largely used for surface car parks, includes retail units, a new flagship office block, restaurants, a medical centre, a new food hall, a community centre, 210 apartments and a 120-bed hotel.

Famous heritage buildings have been sympathetically incorporated into the scheme, with a refurbished Westgate Church being the focus of a major new public square, from which a network of pedestrianised streets will extend. The development is designed to foster a sense of community with a vibrant environment active late into the evening.

Chapman Taylor provided the masterplan and architecture for the regeneration of this key city centre area on behalf of Hawksworth Securities.

Congratulations to Hawksworth Securities and everyone involved in the much-anticipated development for gaining this planning permission. We look forward to seeing North Westgate become a reality soon.
