A transport strategy for the district of Huntingdonshire has been developed, to tackle existing transport problems and facilitate sustainable future growth, whilst supporting carbon net zero in Cambridgeshire by 2045 and other positive environmental and health outcomes. The Huntingdonshire Transport Strategy sets a transport vision for the area, promoting and enhancing safe active travel, to support a thriving economy and improve quality of life across Huntingdonshire.
It was adopted by the Highways and Transport Committee on 7 March 2023 (Cambridgeshire CMIS website). The strategy and emerging action plan can be viewed here.
The Huntingdonshire Strategic Transport Study (opens as a .pdf) was produced to provide an evidence base of the baseline transport conditions in the area for preparation and examination of the Huntingdonshire Local Plan to 2036.

The draft strategy was produced with input from County and District Members via a Member Steering Group, and key stakeholders during a six-week stakeholder engagement exercise in May and June 2022.

The Strategy includes an emerging action plan of schemes to deliver the strategy vision and objectives.
