Plans to create a local currency for the city, the Peterborough Pound, are well advanced. The Peterborough Pound is designed to be used by individuals and local businesses. Similar schemes have already been successfully introduced in places like Totnes, Bristol, and Brixton and many other towns and cities are following suit, though the Peterborough pound is likely to be the first local currency in this region. The project has already secured funding for a pilot scheme, which will begin as soon as enough individuals and local businesses have signed up to get involved. Both individuals and businesses can register/pledge to be part of the scheme on the Peterborough Pound website. For further information please visit the Peterborough Pound website or facebook page or read the Peterborough Pound Leaflet.
