“The panel brings together very successful people in their fields and I am sure there will be a diverse range of opinions. It will be interesting to hear the different views on the issues that are affecting Cambridge now and as it grows in the future.

“Cambridge is a very successful city, with very low unemployment, but also huge challenges. How do we nurture Cambridge’s success, reduce inequality, make sure people can find housing here, and enable people to get around? These are the challenges we will address.
