Love Cambridge is built on the legacy of the previous informal City Centre Management Partnership, which was first set up back in 1995 and since then has been led by the City Council. The key objectives of the move to an independent organisation are to strengthen the partnership and to provide a structure which will enable all organisations involved to have a say in how the city evolves.
It is a not for profit Company, limited by Guarantee, led by a board of directors who are drawn from a wide range of interests from across the city centre. As a membership organisation, it invites active involvement from all city centre organisations who are committed to working to help Cambridge build on its strengths and respond to its challenges through a culture of effective partnership working.
Above all the aim of the partnership is to ensure that Cambridge is welcoming to all who use it, that they have an experience worth having, and always leave looking forward to their next visit.
Partnerships like Love Cambridge now exist in over 550 towns and cities in the UK. What makes these partnerships so effective is that in addition to developing a shared vision for city centres they also act as the driving force in ensuring that project delivery takes place.
