Greater Cambridge Partnership

Greater Cambridge Partnership response to Mayoral Transport Statement The following statement in issued on behalf of the Executive Board of the Greater Cambridge Partnership: Cambridge is the fastest growing city in the UK with growth in Greater Cambridge happening at an accelerated rate. This growth is to the benefit of the local and national economy – it means we have very low unemployment and we need to build houses to accommodate everyone. The Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) has been working since its inception to develop plans necessary to support planned development including the expected 44,000 new jobs by 2030 and significant housing growth in all directions around the city including at Cambourne, Northstowe and Waterbeach. This requires short term measures to tackle the pressing issues we face whilst working, in parallel, towards medium and long-term ambitions. We do not believe the two are incompatible and the case for evidence-based interventions was recently backed by the Cambridge and Peterborough Independent Economic Review in its interim report. The GCP is working to the Combined Authority’s (CA) agreed transport plan and is pursuing schemes that can demonstrably provide building blocks towards the Mayor’s future vision. We have been working closely with the Mayor since his election to ensure our plans are fully aligned with emerging policy and are confident this is the case. This Mayor’s transport statement has been published. It was not discussed with the GCP Board in advance and we will now need to have further discussions with the Mayor to understand the evidence base that underpins it, and how it will help us achieve the city deal targets we agreed with government before the CA existed. Cllr Lewis Herbert, interim Chair of the GCP Executive Board and City Council leader, said: “The Greater Cambridge Partnership now has public transport projects in development west, south east and north of the city, and is close to starting delivery on schemes that have been subject to detailed consultation and which local residents and businesses need completed for the early 2020s - rather than asking them to wait for long term solutions which have not yet started and that are projected could take years to deliver. “The GCP is committed to working together with the Mayor and the Combined Authority, and with wider partners, to deliver for our local communities all the benefits of long-term investment in our region. “In addition, we will continue to advance the case on behalf of Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire, for delivering what is needed sooner too, to give people additional and earlier, attractive alternatives to driving into central Cambridge or locations like Addenbrookes particularly at the most congested times. “In respect of current plans, we will await the outcome of the Combined Authority Board on May 30 before making any decisions on matters due to come before the GCP Executive Board in July.” https://www.greatercambridge.org.uk/news/gcp-response-to-mayoral-transport-statement/
