Due to Peterborough’s ideal location almost right in the middle of England, other major cities such as Leeds and Birmingham can also be reached in under 90 minutes.

Clearly people are seeing the appeal of living in Peterborough as it experienced the second fastest population growth of any UK city between 2004 – 2013. It is now positioned as an alternative to living in London. Demand for property in the city currently outweighs supply by 2:1.

Peterborough is currently in year 8 of a 15-year £1billion regeneration program and is a major player in the “London – Stansted – Cambridge – Peterborough” corridor, a priority growth area as defined by CLG.
