Conclusions

In June 2008 Cambridgeshire County Council reported that there has been a mixed reaction during public consultation to the TIF proposals. This has led to the County establishing a commission of stakeholders that will assess the plans before moving forward. A timetable of review has not been established to date.

Cambridgeshire, like many UK local authorities, faces the many challenges of establishing a road pricing programme. Public and media pressure, mostly fear of the unknown and viewing road pricing in isolation and not as part of a package of demand management measures, do not help. This, combined with fears of a national recession and the rise in the cost of living in the United Kingdom in the last 12 months, adds to the problems of considering a charging scheme.

It remains to be seen whether Cambridgeshire will progress with their Congestion Charging package scheme. At this time the proposal is on hold.
