In light of the sad news of the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, we have decided to postpone this event. We will reschedule with a new date and time when political campaigning resumes.

On 6 May, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Region goes to the polls for the second time to choose a metro mayor with powers over transport, planning and skills. The elected metro mayor sets out and implements a strategic vision for the economy of the metro area, supporting people, firms and institutions.

As the campaign for the election gains momentum, Centre for Cities and the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce are hosting a hustings for candidates to set out their plans to respond to the pandemic and their recovery strategy for the region with particular reference to infrastructure, innovation and business.

Confirmed candidates in the mayoral elections:

  • James Palmer, Conservative Party candidate (confirmed)
  • Aidan Van de Weyer, Liberal Democrats Party candidate (confirmed)
