Mayor James Palmer announced today: “Martin Whiteley has worked with me and Council Leaders to deliver the momentous devolution deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
“These two years have been crucial in getting our priorities and plans into place for delivery of our promises to the local community.
“Martin has now decided that the time is right to move on to new challenges and I wish him well in the future.
“It’s now time to recruit a new Chief Executive to take us into a new phase of accelerated delivery over the next few years.
“This is an exciting time for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough as we gear up the organisation to meet the challenges of Brexit and continue to focus on delivering real outcomes for all our communities.”
