What we do and the Combined Authority Board

The Combined Authority will be a lean and effective authority. Where possible, we will look to use existing resources whilst ensuring there is a relatively small investment available. This will allow us to create an effective team that will be essential in delivering our vision for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Who we are

In November 2016, all eight organisations agreed to pursue the devolution deal made with Central Government. From December 2016, the Shadow Combined Authority held monthly public meetings to progress the creation and formation of the authority. Following the signing of the Order by Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, the first official meeting of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority took place on 20th March 2017.

A Mayor will give the Combined Authority a focal point and will be the contact for Central Government, working hard to ensure the organisation works closely with them to deliver the best results for local people.
