Community forums

GCP community forums are used by the GCP to engage with the community on its major infrastructure projects. Some projects continue to work with Local Liaison forums while the design schemes for the projects are developed.

The forums exist to keep local members and residents informed and involved in the development.

They act as a channel through which scheme updates, local issues, opportunities, and concerns, which are relevant to the scheme specific scope, can be considered.

Consultations and Public Engagement

GCP conducts comprehensive consultation and public engagement exercises.  These can be found on the GCP / Cambridgeshire County Council shared consultation platform, ConsultCambs

Petitions
