There’s still time to have your say on how we spend our money in the future
There is one week left for you to take our short survey to ensure that you have your say on how the Combined Authority spends its money.
Our Medium Term Financial plan, which can be viewed in its entirety here, sets out how our strategy and priority projects, including in transport, housing, skills and business support can be sustainably funded. It shows our existing and expected income and how we plan to spend it, over the next four years, based on projects that have been approved by our board that support the needs and opportunities of our local region.
Members of the public will be able to have their say on our strategic priorities which will drive decision making until 2025.
Deputy Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, Cllr Anna Smith, said: “The Combined Authority fully understands that many people are feeling the effects of the cost-of-living crisis. Similarly, public services are facing difficulties in balancing service demands, inflation and rising costs. It’s a tough financial landscape that is compounded by historical underfunding in our region. It is therefore essential that we hear from you about how the Combined Authority spends its money, and hope that you will join the people who have already filled in the survey by having your say.
“The public response to this consultation will be discussed at a Combined Authority board meeting on 25th January 2023. Please take this opportunity to tell us what you think of this financial plan.”
The consultation can be accessed here.
Survey closes 13th January 2023 at 5PM.
