The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, led by Mayor James Palmer, is to become the first region in the country to roll out e-bikes and e-scooters to the public, offering the potential for fast, clean and inexpensive travel that can help to ease congestion on the roads and transport networks, reduce pollution and allow for social distancing.
A planning application for a new University in Peterborough has been submitted by Pegasus Group, on behalf of Peterborough HE Property Company, to Peterborough City Council.

One of the greatest conveniences of the modern world is public transport - and making it more available, more accessible, more reliable, more climate-friendly, more joined-up, and more affordable is high on my agenda as leader of the Combined Authority.
