Peterborough City Council (PCC) has published its Embankment Masterplan, which includes proposals for a new 20,000-capacity stadium.
While it would become the new home of Peterborough United FC, the plans call for a multi-use venue capable of hosting a range of other uses – from large scale entertainment events to smaller-scale music events and other performances.
According to the masterplan, the stadium’s footprint would cover an area of 2.4ha, surrounded by a 2.3ha ” high-quality public realm”.
The stadium is one of the elements included in the Embankment Masterplan, which was completed by independent consultants Stantec and Barton and Willmore for PCC.
It sets out a vision and framework for the future of the part of the city that includes a new City Riverside Park, Anglia Ruskin University Peterborough campus and Cultural Quarter built around the Key Theatre.
Councillor Wayne Fitzgerald, leader of Peterborough City Council, said: “The Embankment Masterplan is a key document which could provide a blueprint for a large area of our city centre.”
