Rethink saves Peterborough Land Registry jobs

A Land Registry office set for closure in Peterborough has been saved.

The registry announced in October it would close its Croydon, Peterborough, Portsmouth, Stevenage and Tunbridge Wells bases to save £92m.

But now it has said it will keep the Peterborough and Croydon branches open, saving 500 staff from compulsory redundancy.

Chief executive Marco Pierleoni said it had "listened carefully" to the views expressed in the consultation.
