Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA 22nd March 2012 Dear Amanda McSherry I am writing in support of the proposed Cycle Hub as part of the developments at Peterborough Garden Park. I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park have consulted with local communities and stakeholders to develop their proposals and ensure they are responding to local need. A Cycle Hub will raise the profile and accessibility of cycling in Peterborough, both as a transport option and a leisure facility. The positioning of the cycle hub so close to the Green Wheel cycle route will enhance this asset, further contributing to Peterborough’s Environment Capital aspirations. We look forward to working with Peterborough Garden Park on this, and other environmental initiatives including tree planning for Forest for Peterborough.

Yours faithfully

Dear Amanda McSherry I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. The final plans that have been submitted will bring value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. I believe that the proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. I would personally find the supermarket useful and of benefit. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area, the improvements to transport and access, and the creation of apprenticeships during construction I also believe that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive. I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours faithfully, Linda Woods Linda Woods 3 College Park Peterborough PE1 4AW


Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA 28th March 2012 Dear Sirs, I am writing on behalf of Peterborough Cycling Club in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. We are sure that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive. Our particular interest centres on the potential for developing cycling in the area, and especially the proposed Cycle Hub. The Club already benefits from cooperation with the Garden Park, and has reached agreement to carry out cycle training for beginners and more advanced young riders on the site. This would be further enhanced if the Cycle Hub is allowed to proceed along with the other proposed extensions. The Club is committed to furthering the healthy pursuit of most forms of cycling and cycle sport and development of facilities at the Garden Park would be highly beneficial to this cause. We hope you will consider our views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours faithfully,

Dear Amanda McSherry, I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. I am very pleased to see that Garden Park has widely consulted with the local community over the proposed extension. This will enhance the area immensely. I am heavily involved with the community in Werrington where there is great admiration and support for this project. It will also please those visiting Garden Park and will assist in the strengthening of the local community. The proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. There is a lack of such a facility in this area. I would personally find the supermarket useful and of benefit. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area, the improvements to transport and access, and the creation of apprenticeships during construction. The whole project is fantastic and is much admired by residents from other parts of the City. It will also bring in new well needed jobs and skills. The cycle route is so beneficial for the local cyclists and is a great area for cycling. I want to see Garden Park not only survive but to grow and grow to make us in Peterborough very proud of it. I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours faithfully,

I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. The final plans that have been submitted will bring value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. As a current partner of the Garden Park, we have experienced a positive and engaging organisation that is keen to support the local economy. The delivery of apprenticeships through the College has been successful to date with a number of outlets within the Garden Park and we are keen to support the continued development of apprenticeship activity. I also believe that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive. We look forward to contributing to the development of the Skills Centre, which as the largest provider of vocational and skills based training, we are keen to see complement existing provision. The Centre is clearly being carefully considered to ensure a partnership approach and we intend to provide our expertise through our involvement in the National Skills Academy Environmental Technologies; our experience of operating out centres; our expertise in delivering across all subject sectors and industries to all ages; our strong partnerships with businesses and the local community; and our high quality apprenticeships, education and training as recently endorsed by Ofsted. I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours faithfully

12th March 2012

Dear Sir,

I am writing in support of the proposed extension of Peterborough Garden Park planning application reference number: 12/00290/OUT. MHE Retail is a specialist consulting firm with thirty-five years experience of advising retailers, consumer brands and shopping centre developers. In September 2010 we were invited to review the commercial prospects for Peterborough Garden Park and how the scheme could best be further developed to service the needs of the catchment whilst producing better returns for the retailers and owners. We found that the park clearly differentiates itself from other retail developments in the region, with its primary focus on garden, home and leisure and to offer a pleasant shopping experience in very attractive surroundings. Consumer research with visitors to the scheme produced a strong endorsement for Garden Park with favourable reactions to retail offer and environment and particularly the unique Van Hage anchor which is a significant draw in the region. However there is a clear perception that ‘there are not enough good shops for me to come often’. The shoppers’ responses were mirrored in the feedback we received from tenants: an attractive and well differentiated scheme but not enough shopper traffic because of the limited offer. As a consequence, sales per sq.ft. and profitability were poor for most tenants. All evidence pointed to the clear conclusion that the scheme lacked critical mass and without additional retail with a high traffic driving anchor, the viability of the existing park would be seriously called into question.

REGISTERED OFFICE AS ABOVE


-2-

Subsequent trading throughout 2011 and 2012 to date support this initial conclusion. Unless Garden Park is expanded in the way proposed, it is likely that more current tenants will be forced to vacate existing units which will be difficult to re-let. Van Hage, with its regional reputation, will lose the necessary supporting retail this important anchor requires. On the other hand, an imaginative second phase with the right tenant mix could add a thriving element to the region’s retail offer. Yours faithfully,

George Wallace Chief Executive

Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA For the attention of Amanda McSherry 12 March 2012

Dear Amanda I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. As a Community Development Worker based in Parnwell I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. My post is funded through the Big Lottery Fair Share project as Parnwell was felt to have not received its fair share of Lottery funding. This funding comes to an end in December 2012 and various projects have worked in Parnwell to improve the lives of local residents. In consultation that I have personally undertaken using the Planning for Real method many of the things that are in this application had already been raised by Parnwell residents. I would particularly like to mention the transport links into the city, which have for many years been of concern to residents and any improvements that will come with the approval of this application would be very well received by residents. A new supermarket, training facility and indoor children’s play centre are also priorities which residents had raised during consultation and these things would really enhance the local community bringing much needed jobs to the area and giving local people the opportunity to improve themselves through training delivered locally. There are many young families in Parnwell and particularly families who feel isolated by English not being their first language and these families have said that they would love a local indoor play facility so that, whilst their children are playing, they have the opportunity to talk to other families.


I know through all the work that I do in Parnwell and the conversations I have with residents that they really appreciate the facilities that are already on offer at Garden Parks and they want these facilities to be enhanced and continue to thrive in this community. I therefore would strongly recommend that this application be successful as I believe the proposals will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. If there is any more information that you require from me in support of this application please do not hesitate to give me a call. Yours faithfully June Campbell Positively Parnwell Development Co-ordinator

7.3.2012 F.a.o Amanda McSherry Dear Ms McSherry I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. The final plans that have been submitted will bring value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. I think it is extremely important that Peterborough’s disabled residents have been consulted and involved in the Garden Park development. Many of our members use the Green Wheel but we would like to see a big increase in use by wheelchair users and others with mobility issues and the proximity of the Garden Park to the Green Wheel will encourage more disabled people and their families to use this wonderful asset. I believe that the proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. I would personally find the supermarket useful and of benefit. Many of the existing supermarkets in the city pay scant regard to the needs of disabled drivers. I understand from conversations with the Garden Park management, the requirements of disabled drivers are very much at the front of their plans and this will be very much appreciated by many of the 8000 Blue Badge holders in Peterborough who want and need much better accessible parking for disabled shoppers. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area, the improvements to transport and access, and the creation of apprenticeships during construction I also believe that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.

Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive.

2nd March 2012 Reference number: 12/00290/OUT Ms A McSherry Planning Officer Peterborough City Council Bridge Street Peterborough Dear Ms McSherry Re: Phase 2 - Garden Park Peterborough I refer to the above planning application and on economic, skills and employment grounds we strongly support the application and hope that it will be granted approval. We were the contractors appointed for the construction of Phase 1 and during our time on site worked with our clients Garden Parks (Peterborough Two) Limited to support their ‘Being A Good Neighbour’ programme. We now look forward to building on this initiative in Phase 2. In particular we and our clients are prepared to commit to the creation of training opportunities at the scheme. We propose three trainee / apprenticeship positions being available for the duration of the works and would actively see that this would be achieved. These may be in the form of construction management and administration within the site management team or if appropriate and safe, for a candidate interested in manual craft work to have experience with the construction team out on site. Naturally all basic health and safety training would be put in place. The company’s position has always been to support local people and at the current time is fully sponsoring a trainee contract manager on a foundation degree at University Centre Peterborough and a local trainee quantity surveyor on a degree course at Nottingham Trent University. We have our own training academy giving access to courses relating to all construction processes which would be made available as considered suitable. As a local Peterborough company we hope the project secures your approval so that our apprenticeship proposals can be implemented and many Peterborough based construction personnel can be employed on the contract. Yours sincerely,

Paul Faux Director and General Manager

9 St. Albans Drive  Eye  Peterborough  PE6 7XU  Tel: 01733 705519  7th March 2012. Ms. A. McSherry, Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA

Dear Ms. McSherry, Ref: Planning Application Ref. no. 12/00190/OUT. We are writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park as detailed in the above planning application. Since the opening of the Garden Park we have greatly supported it and can only think that the proposals submitted will enhance the east side of Peterborough. We were pleased that the Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders prior to submitting their planning application. Here in Eye, residents had an opportunity to view the proposals and to ask questions at a consultation meeting held in the village hall. The final plans that have been submitted will benefit a wide spectrum from local communities to residents across Peterborough and also visitors to the city (we know many people who come to Peterborough just to visit the Garden Park). In our opinion, the proposed new supermarket would be a great asset to the east of Peterborough and is much needed given that the area has expanded considerably over the years we have lived here and through other local consultations we are also very aware that even more housing is scheduled. On a personal level we would welcome a new supermarket at this end of Peterborough and would find it beneficial, as, we are sure, would many members of the surrounding communities. We are also in favour of the improved children’s play area (an area which is sadly lacking around the eastern part of the city). Improvements to transport and access can only be a good thing and the creation of apprenticeships during construction would benefit the local communities. We also believe that the proposed development will bring much needed employment to the area and will ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive. The proposed Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work can only be a boost for the city. As users of the Green Wheel cycle route we are in favour of anything that supports Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda. We hope you will take our views into consideration when making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours sincerely,

Andy and Yvonne Fisher.


Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA 09/03/2012 Dear Ms McSherry., I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference number 12/00290/OUT. As a local resident I am writing in support of the Garden Park planning application as detailed above. The reasons for my support are; 1. I believe that the Garden Park is a major asset to this area of the city, however it cannot be denied that it needs further development in order to ensure its future survival. 2. The eastern area of the city is poorly served by supermarkets, competition to Sainsbury’s can only benefit we locals. 3. Bring much needed new jobs to the area. 4. Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work. For these reasons I hope the council will look favourably on this application. Yours faithfully, M. J Keynes 48 Keys park Parnwell Way Peterborough PE1 4SL


Peterborough City Council Planning Department  c/o Athene Communications  25 Priestgate  Peterborough  PE1 1NA        12th March 2012        Dear Ms McSherry       I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning  application reference number 12/00290/OUT.     I am the Secretary of Parnwell Residents Association and have lived on Henshaw, Parnwell for almost  sixteen years now, and I have seen many changes.  I felt that having Garden Park built on our  doorstep was really good for Parnwell, because, after watching developments go up all around  Peterborough, such as Hampton, Stanground, Werrington, Bretton, and also in other parts of town,  it was nice to see someone investing in our Eastern side and I for one welcomed the Shopping  Centre and am totally in favour of any further developments to the site as have to be of benefit to us  here on Parnwell.       I was also very pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with  local communities and stakeholders and actually asked us what we thought about their plans  in  advance of submitting their planning application for their new venture. They attended one of our  meetings and explained everything to us which was really useful and gave us the opportunity to ask  questions and discover exactly what the plans were.       I understand that the final plans that have now been submitted. To my mind, the whole venture can  only bring value to the local area, we could really do with another local supermarket, and the Skills  Centre and Cycle Hub would be great for the community as a whole. Improved play areas on site  would also be good for residents and visitors alike, especially if you consider  the proposed increase  in housing planned for our area. It would be nice to have a choice of another supermarket to use  without having to drive miles, just the mere freedom of choice would be good. It will benefit the  whole of the eastern area as well as residents from all across Peterborough and visitors to the city.      The improvements to transport and access roads will be useful, and with the development brings  jobs for the construction and jobs for the new developments, again this can only be good for us. The  government are proposing new apprenticeships and the construction of the new extension to the  site would be an ideal opportunity to create some of these for us here.      All in all, I believe the proposed development will:  • Bring the much needed new jobs to the area.  • Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda. (i.e. To help local people  secure training and future work.)  


• •

Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route whilst supporting  Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive and becomes a very important  part of our Eastern area, drawing people in from all over the country as well as our local  people.  

  I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application.      Yours faithfully,    L Morton (Mrs)  6 Henshaw, Parnwell, Peterborough  PE1 4BG

I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. The final plans that have been submitted will bring value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. I believe that the proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area as there are very few facilities available for families and young children in this are. The improvements to transport, particularly public transport will be of great benefit to our school as at the moment it is very difficult to get to the Garden Park without using a minibus and our youngsters are the public bus users of the future. The creation of apprenticeships during construction is very welcome news and also the new jobs that will be created are badly needed in the area. I also believe that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive.

Dear Madam For the Attention of Amanda McSherry I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application reference 12/00290/OUT. I was pleased to see how widely and thoroughly Peterborough Garden Park consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application. The final plans that have been submitted will bring value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. I believe that the proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. I would personally find the supermarket useful and of benefit. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area, the improvements to transport and access, and the creation of apprenticeships during construction. I also believe that the proposed development will: • Bring much needed new jobs to the area • Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work • Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda • Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive. I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Although I live in Oundle, and initially did not think I


would support this planning, I really think anything that can be done to improve the job market for Peterborough, and this area in particular is vital. Last year I was made redundant. So I know how hard it is to start again in the employment market. Luckily I have started my own business, help start up another business, in which I am now employed, qualified as a tour guide for the Cathedral and do voluntary work. Not everyone is lucky enough to be motivated, so any chance we can give to anyone to start again is imperative. I really do hope that this letter is not just added to a pile of other letters, as anyone at any age is entitled to a chance of work, we are after all a city that wants change for the better, let us have that chance.

From: Cllr Saltmarsh Bella Sent: 12 March 2012 10:22 To: Plng Control Enquiries Subject: 12/00290/OUT Peterborough Garden Park. I support this application to expand the Peterborough Garden Park. A retail foodstore is needed in this area to serve the residents of Welland, Dogsthorpe, Parnwell, and Eye. Supermarkets which have recently received planning permission in the city centre area do not help these residents as they are too far away. Transport Plans include the provision of a revision of the bus route to serve the park. The development will bring employment for local people The skills centre would enhance the range of courses which Peterborough regional college based in Western Avenue could offer. The proposed construction of an open air play area and cycle hub supports our city’s environmental initiatives The Garden park has made a difference to the area and I am very keen that it continues to expand and thrive. Kind regards Cllr Bella Saltmarsh Dogsthorpe Ward Tel 01733 266 466

  Dear Ms McSherry 

  I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park – planning application  reference number 12/00290/OUT.    I recently had a meeting with Gordon Edington, Chairman of Peterborough Garden Park to find out more  about the Phase 2 proposal.    If planning consent is granted, the new food store will provide 300 jobs in a part of the city where they  are urgently needed.  I am very supportive of the plans to include provisions for a Leisure Cycle Hub and  to build a Skills Centre. I was also pleased to see an owner bringing forward plans that have a wider  social benefit including improving the Children’s Play Area and an indoor Play Barn.    I firmly believe that this proposal to expand one of Peterborough’s best shopping experiences deserves  a yes from the planners.    Yours faithfully        Cllr John Peach

Peterborough City Council Planning Department c/o Athene Communications 25 Priestgate Peterborough PE1 1NA 16 March 2012 Dear Miss McSherry, Peterborough Garden Park - the next phase (plan app ref 12/00290/OUT) I am writing in support of the proposed extension to Peterborough Garden Park. I know that Peterborough Garden Park have already consulted with local communities and stakeholders in advance of submitting their planning application; indeed, their representative was kind enough to go through the plans with me. I strongly believe that the final plans that have been submitted will bring great value to the local area. They will benefit local communities as well as residents across Peterborough and visitors to the city. Being on the edge of some of the most deprived wards in Peterborough adds additional potential benefit. I believe that the proposed new supermarket is much needed in the east of Peterborough, an area that is scheduled for considerable housing growth. I am also in favour of the improved children’s play area, the improvements to transport and access, and the creation of apprenticeships during construction I also believe that the proposed development will:  Bring much needed new jobs to the area.  Provide a Skills Centre that supports Peterborough’s skills agenda and will help local people secure training and future work.  Help people make greater use of the Green Wheel cycle route and support Peterborough’s Environment Capital agenda.  Ensure that Peterborough Garden Park continues to thrive – something that we need to do our best to ensure in these difficult economic times. I hope you will consider my views in making your decision regarding the planning application. Yours faithfully,

Cllr Stephen Goldspink, Councillor, East Ward
