Consultation response to the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM) Sub Strategy

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority are consulting upon the draft CAM Sub Strategy between 4th May and 17th July 2020 at 5pm.  This is a ‘daughter’ document of the Local Transport Plan for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough which was adopted in March 2020 and it describes the policy framework for the CAM.  Further information and the sub strategy document can be found at the following link:


Appendix 1 to this decision sets out the proposed joint response to the Combined Authority from Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council.  The response is supportive of the potentially transformational role that an integrated public transport system such as the CAM could make, however it offers several areas where the sub strategy should be refined.


Appendix 1 includes a draft letter and more detailed responses to parts of the sub strategy (indicating which question in the CAM Sub Strategy questionnaire they relate to).  The purpose of this decision is to agree these, so that they can be submitted before the deadline.




To ensure an aligned agreement on this consultation document between Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, the Leader of Cambridge City Council is also taking an out of cycle decision on them at the same time.
