Local Transport Authority

The Mayor and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) hold strategic transport powers. They are the Local Transport Authority for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. 

The Mayor and the CPCA are responsible for:

  • Allocating local transport funding for walking, cycling, public transport and highway schemes
  • Encouraging travel by active travel modes
  • Helping improve traffic flow
  • Reducing congestion

Local Transport Plan

The Mayor sets the transport strategy for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Its name is the Local Transport Plan.

In January 2020, the CPCA adopted the first Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Transport Plan. It describes how they can use transport interventions to address current and future challenges and opportunities in the county.

The Local Transport Plan also sets out the policies and strategies needed to secure growth and ensure that planned large-scale development takes place in the county in a sustainable way.

View the Local Transport Plan on the CPCA website.

Local Transport and Connectivity Plan consultation

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) is undertaking a refresh of the Local Transport Plan.

The driver for the refresh is to recognise the recommendations of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate in the strategy. This includes the pathway to a net carbon zero future. They also need to reflect the acceleration and progress of projects across the region in the Local Transport Plan, including the Peterborough Station Quarter.

The CPCA will rename the plan to the Local Transport and Connectivity Plan (LTCP). This reflects the CPCA's commitment to deliver truly integrated connectivity to all communities with a drive towards a net zero carbon future. 

The LTCP will be the CPCA's long-term strategy to improve transport in the county. 

A consultation on the draft LTCP has now closed. You can find further details on the CPCA's website.
