City and county council committees

This article was published in 2022, in Magazine 154.

We encourage campaign members to attend council meetings to find out more about local developments and speak up on behalf of active travel.

Planning Committee and Area Committee meetings often include cycling and walking issues. Development Control Forum and Joint Development Control Committee meetings determine planning applications relating to major housing development proposals.

You can usually find agendas online about a week in advance at www.cambridge.gov.uk/democracy and tinyurl.com/CCCdemocracy (county council). Meetings are returning to in-person events; please check these websites for final confirmation of location and details of how to participate.
