CA newsletter no. 5 – Autumn 2014
Our final newsletter of 2014 looks back on our first year of existence and what we have achieved in this busy period.
Thus we reflect on our participation in securing the City Deal for Cambridge, our successful behind-the-scenes lobbying to re-locate Papworth Hospital to the Biomedical Campus, and our work in helping improve the links between our schools and our businesses – so crucial for long-term economic success. We discuss our Quality of Life survey results, which continue to excite a wide range of external commentators, and will help shape our plans for 2015. The two pages covering our Growth Project team’s work reveal our progress and plans in three key areas, namely Growth forecasting, Economic forecasting, and Commercial property needs. Finally, we confirm the exciting news arising from our Promoting Cambridge team that a promotional agency for the city will be established in Q1 of 2015, a vital development if we are to attract investment, and support business, in our unique and special city.
