The revamp of Lynch Wood Park, in Peterborough Business Park, will get under way in a few months after securing the go ahead from Peterborough City Council planners.

The plans had to be reworked after Historic England applied a Grade II listing to the park’s 30-year-old Pearl Centre and its surrounding gardens.

A spokesperson for FI Real Estate Management said: “This planning permission is great news for our 2,000 plus tenants.”

The refurbishment involves building upgrades plus the addition of 13,650 sq ft of new Grade A office space. There will be a new office entrance and terrace, a new fitness suite plus a new look restaurant.

Lynch Wood Park was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s and the site totals 350,000 sq ft set within 11.74 hectares and is home to a range of businesses from multinational companies to local start-ups.
