Combined Authority Board

In November 2016, all eight organisations agreed to pursue the devolution deal made with Central Government. From December 2016, the Shadow Combined Authority held monthly public meetings to progress the creation and formation of the authority. Following the signing of the Order by Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, the first official meeting of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority took place on 20th March 2017. Each partner is represented by the leader of their organisation. We are made up of representatives from eight organisations. These are Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council, Fenland District Council, Huntingdonshire District Council, Peterborough City Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council and The Business Board. The Combined Authority is held to account by several committees made up of representatives from partner local authorities. The Authority is led by a Mayor James Palmer, who was elected on 5th May 2017.
