Major IT issue

Thank you for your patience whilst IT have been resolving the problems. The majority of our systems are now back online and IT are working hard to resolve the final few.

Nearly all problems have been resolved, although customers may still get a "delivery failure" reply if emailing a Council department.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us in the latter half of next week as we anticipate the first half of the week to be extremely busy.

We apologise for any inconvenience while we work to resolve this problem.


Devolution is when certain power, responsibilities and funding are transferred down from Central Government to a local region.

This will mean that more important decisions are decided by a local combined authority rather than being imposed by Government as well as new funding. This includes decisions on things like housing, transport and major infrastructure projects.

Following the signing of the Order by Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority was officially formed in March 2017. Each partner is represented by the leader of their organisation. Cllr Perer Topping, Leader of the Council is our representative.

The Combined Authority is made up of representatives from eight organisations. Along with ourselves, these are Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council, Fenland District Council, Huntingdonshire District Council, Peterborough City Council and the Greater Cambridge, Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership (GCGP LEP). 

The authority will be led by a Mayor for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. More information about the Combined Authority and the role of the Mayor can be found on the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority website.
