There is a renewed energy for the development of enterprise and commercial opportunities in Peterhead town centre which are about not only changing the perception of the town and its retail heart, but also seeing it as a hub for wider economic opportunities in Aberdeenshire. There are a number of recent developments which point to this vision and ambition being turned into reality.

Confidence is evident in the commercial sector with over £25 million of inward investment from chains such as Aldi, Travelodge, BrewDog and good quality independents such as Brew Toon, Lettuce Eat Healthy and Carriages, all recognising the potential in Peterhead with their investment in business premises.
