Daily-turned-weekly moves to new city centre base

A daily turned weekly newspaper has moved to a new city centre office a stone’s throw from its previous base.

Staff at the Peterborough Telegraph are now based at Unex House, in the city, after almost 30 ears at their previous Priestgate home.

The move means around 160 people employed by the Telegraph’s parent company Johnston Press will be based under the same roof at the new site, off Bourges Boulevard.

The newspaper’s former Oundle Road printing presses, in Peterborough, closed in 2012 with the loss of 35 jobs and has since been redeveloped for housing.

Editor Mark Edwards said: “We are very much looking forward to moving into our new offices.

“Our parent company Johnston Press employs around 160 people in Peterborough and we will now be all under one roof at Unex House.

“The move will be tinged with a little sadness as we have enjoyed our three decades at Priestgate.

“But as the rest of the building in Priestgate is turned into flats it’s clear that it’s the right time for us to move – albeit just over the road.”

The move took place on Friday, two days after the Telegraph relaunched its website in line with several other JP titles.

The paper has been based at the Priestgate building since November 1986. Staff had previously been based at offices in Oundle Road, Woodston.
