National Productivity Investment Fund 2018 to 2020 

As part of the Autumn Statement 2016, the Government announced the creation of the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) for investment in areas that are key to boosting productivity, digital communications, research & development and housing. Funding for 2017-18 was allocated to local highways authorities on non-competitive basis. The County Council was allocated £2.9m and will spend this on these schemes.

The Department for Transport subsequently announced that £490m from the NPIF would be available through a competitive bidding process for spend in financial year 2018-19 and 2019-20.

We have submitted two bids with the support of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership. The first bid is for March junctions improvements and the second bid is for Wisbech development access improvements. Both bids focus on reducing congestion and enabling housing and employment development. Please see more information about each below.

Local Transport Body for Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Rutland

The Department for Transport aims to devolve funding for major transport schemes to Local Transport Bodies (LTBs) from April 2015 onwards. Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council and Rutland County Council set up the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough (GCGP) LTB  in 2013.

Following further changes in the Government’s devolved funding arrangements, capital funding for growth including LTB major scheme funding is being devolved to Local Enterprise Partnerships. GCGP LTB funding is incorporated in the Local Growth Fund secured through the GCGP Growth Deal. Funding allocations were announced in July 2014 and January 2015.

An independent technical evaluation has been completed for one of the LTB schemes for funding in 2015. The Bourges Boulevard Phase 1 scheme in Peterborough has been assessed by an Independent Technical Advisor to establish the scheme’s value for money.
