Up to 1,000 local jobs may be created if plans to build a 750,000 sq. ft. House of Fraser distribution hub on the edge of Peterborough go ahead.

The department store chain wants to build the hub on the Gateway Peterborough development site, which is located at the junction of the A1 (M) and the A605.

The site already benefits from outline consent for up to 5 million sq. ft. of industrial and distribution buildings.

Gateway is owned and developed by Roxhill, a specialist industrial and distribution developer.

Ray Kavanagh, executive director of commercial and logistics for House of Fraser, said: “We are delighted to be working with Peterborough City Council and will be working closely with the local authority to ensure our proposals deliver on promises made at the outline stage of jobs, growth and investment in the local economy.”
