‘Cambridge deserves better’ – consortium to demand more consultation in Greater Cambridge Partnership

The Cambridge Commons has joined forces with a consortium of voluntary groups, parish councils and residents associations to lobby for changes to the City Deal.

The consortium wants the now renamed ‘Greater Cambridge Partnership’ to offer greater transparency and a more consultative planning process that takes account of local people.

To discuss this with Mayor James Palmer, join us on 5 September 7-8.30pm at the Cambridge Rugby Club: Cambridge deserves better: a new vision for our region.

Speakers include Terry Macalister, Colin Harris (Cambridge Connect), Wendy Blythe (FeCRA), Cllr Rod Cantrill (Cambridge), Cllr Tumi Hawkins (South Cambridgeshire), Stephen Coates (Save the West Fields) and Edward Leigh (Smarter Cambridge Transport).

Book your place here.
