James Palmer interview in 'The Moment'

An interview with Mayor James Palmer in the August 2017 issue of the Peterborough monthly magazine The Moment.

"What I need to make sure is everyone buys in to why the money is being spent where it is.  So if I’m going to spend a substantial amount in, for example, Peterborough, the Leader of South Cambs needs to see the benefit to South Cambs.

"By upskilling the workforce in Peterborough we are encouraging businesses to move to the city and therefore taking the pressure off South Cambs to build yet more housing.  So you’re protecting quality of life in the south of the county while investing in the north so people there get the opportunity to earn more money."
