Democracy & Transparency

The pages below provide further detail on the formation, structure, partners and ambitions of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority.

How we plan

The Combined Authority is committed to delivering for people in new ways. We know that you want to see action on much-needed interventions to help our communities thrive: from better transport to more homes and improved (and fairer) opportunities for people and business. We are challenging the status quo on how schemes are delivered, speeding up investments so that we bring returns and stimulus to the economy quicker, and better.

How we work

The work of the Combined Authority is done through a constant flow of democratic decision-making and practical, focused delivery. The elected Mayor, the Combined Authority Board, and the Committees (both comprised of elected members of the Constituent Councils) direct our work to follow your priorities, values and goals for our region. Teams of specialist officers then drive the projects forward on the ground.

We have identified six key areas to improve – called the ‘six keys’ that will help unlock growth for the region.

All our plans and strategies outline ambitions for how they will achieve in at least one of the ‘six keys’, with performance targets to keep progress on track.

Below you can find details of the Boards and Committees of the Combined Authority. The Combined Authority Board and the Committees all meet publicly on Zoom (during Covid-19 restrictions) and in person when possible, and we welcome you attending. You can also ask a public question at any of these meetings: find out more about the process for asking a public question here.

The Business Board, the Skills Board and the Eastern Agri-Tech Panel meet in private. 

You can also find the details of our Governance and Transparency information, including our policies and assurance frameworks below.
