Our Big Conversation 

Your place, your roads, your homes - your future. your views count. 

The Greater Cambridge Partnership 

We are a group of local organisations working together to create economic growth and improve the quality of life for all that live in, and use, Greater Cambridge - both for now and for the future. 

We have secured up to £1billion in funding, to 2030, to help create the right conditions to keep Cambridge, and the District a thriving city region and to ensure even more people and businesses benefit from this. 

We are investing in key incentives to growth - better transport links, more housing, a skilled workforce - to grow and share prosperity and opportunities right across the region and to help support the national economy. 

We want to do this in a way which solves the issues you want to solve, improves the services you want to improve, and to create the opportunities you want created.

We are investing:

  • Creating better, greener transport networks to connect more people to where they want to go 
  • Accelerating the delivery of 33,500 new homes
  • Supporting and accelerating the creation of 44,000 new jobs
  • Securing 420 additional apprenticeships by 2020
  • Harnessing and developing 'smart' technology

Our Big Conversation

Your views count. 

Between September and November, public feedback was sought on people’s current challenges, hopes and ideas for the future, to help inform and prioritise the Partnership’s long-term investment plans - which focus on improving the transport network, delivery of new homes and jobs, and the harnessing of Smart technologies to benefit local communities and businesses.

The Partnership has analysed more than 10,000 responses generated during its call for public feedback on the Greater Cambridge growth story – how it affects them and what future investment might help them.  The Key Findings report at the bottom of this page provides a summary of those responses, and details the issues which concerned people the most.

This is not, however, the end of public engagement.  There are ongoing consultations and engagement events, and we continue to listen to residents, visitors, and businesses.
