Plans to help transform Peterborough into a’ cultural hotspot’ over the next decade have been given the go-ahead by councillors at a full council meeting.
A wide-ranging new Peterborough Cultural Strategy for 2021 to 2030, aimed at boosting the city’s cultural offer, enhancing people’s quality of life and attracting further investment and visitors was formally agreed by councillors at a full council meeting last night.
The strategy has been co-produced by a number of parties and ties in with the city’s planned future growth. As part of the project, a new culture-focused group called the Peterborough Cultural Alliance (PCA) will be created with the remit of developing arts and heritage across the city.
Key aims include preparing a City of Culture BID in 2029, celebrating Peterborough’s heritage and work to become net carbon zero by 2030 and engaging more with young people aged under 25.
