Eastern promises – but what will be delivered?

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority

Cambridge

Within his first few days in office, James Palmer, the elected mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority published an ambitious ‘100 day plan’ listing his immediate priorities and commitments. This included the commissioning of a new ‘non-statutory’ spatial plan as well as a commitment to launch a strategy to accelerate delivery of 100,000 new homes across the area.

As we come to the end of the Mayor’s first five months in office, the Combined Authority has approved proposals for the preparation of the ‘non-statutory’ spatial plan and Turley considers how the work might influence strategic planning (in particular housing delivery) across the constituent authorities.
