Member of Parliament

Following the general election on 12th December 2019, Anthony Browne (Conservative) is the MP for our South Cambridgeshire seat.

He can be contacted at:

South Cambridgeshire Conservative Association
Broadway House
149-151 St Neots Road
Hardwick
CB23 7QJ

Tel  01954 211 444
E-mail  scca@southcambsconservatives.co.uk
Website  www.southcambridgeshireconservatives.org.uk

The result of the election can be found here and on the South Cambs website.  Detailed historic information about the South Cambridgeshire seat is on this Wikipedia page.

The next scheduled general election will be in 2024.  It is likely to be fought on new boundaries – the 2019 election was contested on the 2010 election boundaries.


The Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority

James Palmer is the Mayor – it is not a ceremonial position, but rather that of a chief executive.  His job is to work on the strategic issues crossing individual council borders within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – notably our housing, travel and infrastructure needs as part of the devolution process which puts local decisions in the hands of local people rather than central government.

He was elected on the Conservative ticket in the County’s first mayoral election.

Elections for Mayors are held every four years.  The last election was on 4 May 2017 – the next will be in May 2021.


Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire

Currently, Cambridgeshire does not have a Police and Crime Commissioner – Jason Ablewhite, who held the post, tendered his resignation on 11th November 2019 after a referral had been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

An acting commissioner will be appointed and serve until the next scheduled election for the post in May 2020.

The PCC is responsible for an efficient and effective police service in Cambridgeshire by setting police and crime objectives, the police budget and issuing crime and disorder reduction grants through his or her Police and Crime Plan. He or she also holds the police to account, making them answerable to the public.

Ablewhite was elected on the Conservative ticket, although the role is non-political.  He succeeded Sir Graham Bright, the first incumbent in the post, who was in office from 2012 to 2016.

The PCC office can be contacted through:
