A final decision is due on the salary of the new Mayor for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.
The recommendation by the Independent Remuneration Panel suggests an annual salary of £75,000 based on the responsibilities of the elected Mayor.

The Panel has to base its recommendations on the duties of the Mayor. It considered the statutory framework for the new Combined Authority, as well as a range of supporting documentation such as the details of the devolution deal produced by the Department of Communities and Local Government.
