Matter for Decision:

To ensure that the Council responds within the consultation period, the Executive Member is now seeking to finalise the attached joint response with respect to those paragraphs which relate to Cambridge City Council outside of the committee cycle

To support the principle of the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet improvements subject to the relevant points raised in the joint response and behalf of the City and South Cambridgeshire Councils.
