Reason / options considered
The Cambridgeshire Integrated Development Programme (IDP) brings together existing spatial and economic strategies to show the overall strategic picture of infrastructure and investment needed to support housing and economic growth in Cambridgeshire to 2021. It identifies the strategic interventions and infrastructure that are required to achieve the housing and economic targets as set out in the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) and Regional Economic Strategy (RES).
The IDP has been developed by Cambridgeshire Horizons and the Greater Cambridgeshire Partnership (GCP), with support from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA). The Boards of the GCP and Cambridgeshire Horizons have steered the progress of the IDP thus far with the County Council actively involved in its development through the Variable Tariff and IDP Steering Group.
The change in the delegation reflected the requirement to undertake action with the relevant Director to avoid a committee of one.
