As the Local Transport Authority for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, the Combined Authority has created a Local Transport Plan in consultation with our partners across the region. The Local Transport Plan covers the ways in which the Combined Authority’s strategies and delivery ambitions around transport fit in with the wider vision of the region’s present and future. It considers the needs of urban and rural communities, commuters, agricultural needs and ways in which environmental sustainability can be furthered.
Consultations are a key part of the timeline for transport projects, ensuring that your opinions as local residents and experts on your area form a key part of infrastructure projects and delivery. In addition to the consultations that we must undertake by law, where possible we also hold earlier public information or engagement events, to give you early insight into our progress on projects that affect you and your area.
The A10 virtual public information event took place in the Summer of 2020. One of our first large online engagement events, the website drew thousands of views of our online exhibition room, and over 700 responses to the survey attached.
The information and feedback that you gave us will help to inform the work on the next stage of the project.
The March Area Transport Study took place in Spring 2020. It was, notably, one of the first virtual engagement events that we undertook, due to the sudden onset of Covid-19 lockdown regulations that stopped us going out into the community.
The Combined Authority continue to respond to consultations that will impact on Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, hinterlands and the United Kingdom. It is important that the Authority responds in a timely manner to these consultations to ensure that the views of the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are heard, with the ultimate aims to promote and enhance the transport network of the region.
The current list of live consultations that the Authority will be responding to can be found here. And the responses submitted by the Authority specifically in relation to transport matters, over the past 12 months can be found here.
