“A number of recent developments point to this vision and ambition being turned into reality, including more than £25 million of inward investment from good quality independents such as Brew Toon, The Printworks, Lettuce Eat Healthy and the new Arc Cinema and chains such as Aldi, Travelodge, Brew Dog – all recognising the potential in Peterhead with their investment in business premises.”
