Cambridge Labour Publishes City Report

The City Report is an annual report laying out the top 40 achievements of the Labour-led Council from the past year.

Some of the key achievements include:

  • Committed £54 million investment in East Barnwell, Abbey – including a new community centre, library, pre-school facility, open space, shopping units and 120 high quality council homes
  • Invested £170,000 in 34 new environmental improvement project ideas generated by residents
  • Supported an application to create a Designated Bathing Water stretch on the river Cam, placing new legal obligations on polluters to clean up their act
  • Placed second of all UK district councils in Climate Emergency UK’s rankings of local authorities for our actions to combat the climate crisis
  • Funded new staff to tackle antisocial behaviour and domestic abuse
  • Directly delivered more new council homes than any other local authority in the UK bar Birmingham
  • Awarded over £1.1m in grants to 88 community organisations to run projects tackling social and economic inequality


Welcoming the launch of the City Report, Leader of the Council, Mike Davey commented: 

Labour in Cambridge is all about taking action. I am proud to present our 2024 City Report which demonstrates the hard work of our council over the past year, highlighting a few of our top achievements. It has been a difficult year for many local authorities across the country, yet despite the challenges we face, we have consistently delivered for the city and our residents. We are honoured to have been granted stewardship of this wonderful city and we aspire to be ambitious, compassionate and forward-thinking in our leadership.

Cambridge is an ever-changing city, and while this presents us with fantastic new opportunities, we are aware of the difficulties that many of our residents are facing. We understand the importance of our essential services and will work hard to protect them: we are collecting your bins efficiently and consistently, improving our play areas and green spaces, and working hard with our partners to make our city a safer place. We are also tackling issues head-on and supporting people in need: building record numbers of new council homes to high environmental standards, ensuring residents have access to affordable and healthy food, and providing support for refugees and people facing homelessness. This is work we can guarantee we will continue delivering as a Labour administration.

Our vision for Cambridge must also be a shared vision and we are lucky to have many great local organisations working incredibly hard to create a better, more compassionate, equal and thriving city. I would like to thank all the groups, charities and individuals who work so hard to serve our city. It’s only by voting Labour on May 2nd that you can guarantee that the fantastic work we’ve been doing can continue.”


All residents will shortly be receiving a paper copy of the city report through their door.
