About Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority
On 3 March 2017, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority was established as a Mayoral Combined Authority for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area.
The Combined Authority works with our local councils, the Business Board (Local Enterprise Partnership), local public services, Government departments and agencies, universities and businesses to grow the local and national economy.
It is made up of a directly elected Mayor and the following seven local authorities (referred to as the Constituent Councils) and the Business Board (Local Enterprise Partnership):
- Cambridge City Council
- Cambridgeshire County Council
- East Cambridgeshire District Council
- Fenland District Council
- Huntingdonshire District Council
- Peterborough City Council
- South Cambridgeshire District Council
We believe in doing things differently and in looking for new solutions. We believe in levelling up the entire region from the Fens in the North to Peterborough and Huntingdon in the West to Cambridge in the South.
We believe in partnership; we believe in making the most of our region’s unbeatable agricultural, industrial and technological potential. We believe in making home something everyone can aspire to; we believe in world-beating public transport.
We believe in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
Our key ambitions for the Combined Authority include:
- doubling the size of the local economy
- accelerating house building rates to meet local and UK need
- delivering outstanding and much needed connectivity in terms of transport and digital links
- providing the UK’s most technically skilled workforce
- transforming public service delivery to be much more seamless and responsive to local need
- growing international recognition for our knowledge based economy
- improving the quality of life by tackling areas suffering from deprivation
