Lucy Frazer MP met with estate agents to discuss the importance of infrastructure development and housing.
Ms Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire visited Cheffins to discuss regeneration throughout the constituency looking at the importance of work to the Ely Bypass, dualling of the A10 and the improvements to the Ely North rail junction.
Ms Frazer said: “All of these schemes are high on the current agenda as the importance of South East Cambridgeshire is very much recognised by central Government.
“There has been a significant level of investment, both from domestic sources and overseas coming into East Cambs and we are keen to provide the level of infrastructure needed to support this.”
She met Philip Woolner, joint managing partner, Michael Jones, director of commercial agency and Darren Hill, commercial property manager at the Cambridge branch.
Ms Frazer has campaigned on the dualling of the A10, working closely with James Palmer, mayor of the Combined Authority and also working with the county council, the district council, the Local Enterprise Partnership and the Department of Transport, helping to ensure that the £16m provided by the Government remained committed.
