June's Joint Assembly papers published

Published: Tuesday, June 5, 2018


Reports for the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Joint Assembly meeting on 14 June have been published [external website].

Among items to be considered on the agenda will be an update on the City Access programme, outlining interim findings on future public transport requirements and the preferred option for bus, cycling and walking improvements to Milton Road, with a request to consult the public in the autumn.

A paper on Greenways - 12 proposed new walking, cycling and equestrian links connecting villages to the city - seeks approval for public consultation on the Barton and Haslingfield in summer 2018 and also includes a potential £4.6m programme of ‘quick wins’.

However, in light of the Mayor’s Interim Transport Statement [external website], the Executive Board has agreed to amend or reschedule a number of items on the previously published agenda. The GCP's full response to the Mayor's request can be found here.

Changes to the Joint Assembly agenda items include:

  • Deferral  of a decision on the A428 Cambourne to Cambridge project subject to further discussions between GCP and the Combined Authority. This planned paper has been withdrawn from the agenda.
  • Deferral of a decision on route alignments as part of the Cambridge South East Transport Study (CSETS). This paper will now focus on the outcome of public consultation and recommendations on ‘quick wins’ - proposals to improve junctions, bus lanes and pedestrian and cycling routes along the A1307 in the short term.

As a result of this decision, the planned Cambourne to Cambridge Local Liaison Forum (LLF) on Monday 11 June has been cancelled and will be rescheduled to a more appropriate date.

The CSETS LLF on Wednesday (6 June) will now focus on the proposed programme of ‘quick wins’ to include road safety and improvements to junctions and pedestrian and cycling facilities along the A1307, with discussion of route strategies deferred to a later date. 

We are in the process of informing LLF members and apologise for any inconvenience.  

The Joint Assembly meeting will be held at The Guildhall in Cambridge from 2pm.

The Executive Board meets on 4 July at The Guildhall. The meeting begins at 4pm.
