  1. 2. “ It is by their centres that cities are recognised, judged and remembered. Most visitors to a City see nothing but the central area and one approach to it, and the only knowledge of a City that is shared by all who live in it is their knowledge of its centre. In the minds of residents and visitors alike, it is the image of the City’s centre that is called up by the mention of its name: for all, in a real sense, the Centre is the City” Greater Peterborough Plan, 1971
