Contribute the The Review

08/01/18: A vital part of the work of the review is the gathering of evidence. Much of this is in the form of statistics, forecasts and reports by economists and others. But evidence can take many forms and come from anyone with a view and experience of the issues considered by the Review.

The Commission is seeking evidence in relation to the following key questions set out in its terms of reference: 

  1. How important is Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for the regional and national economy? 
  2. What are Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s regional, national and international links? 
  3. How far can economic activity that occurs in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough be shown to be net additional to the UK economy, rather than just displacement? 
  4. Do other growing cities like Cambridge and Peterborough share common characteristics, problems and infrastructure requirements and what can we learn from them? 
  5. How does Cambridgeshire and Peterborough achieve continued prosperity and high growth rates? 
  6. How equitable is growth across the whole of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and what strategies should be adopted in future to address this issue? 
  7. What types of infrastructure and other investment would best enable Cambridgeshire to achieve its full growth potential and contribute to regional and national economic growth? 
  8. How should Cambridgeshire and Peterborough describe its uniqueness or brand to attract further investment from Government and the private sector? 
  9. Are there any policy and planning recommendations which arise from the answers to these questions? 


All evidence needs to be submitted by Thursday 15th February 2018.
