Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Police and Crime Commissioner elections postponed over coronavirus outbreak
Local elections have been postponed for a year over the coronavirus outbreak.
The decision will affect elections for Cambridge City Council and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Police and Crime Commissioner on May 7.
All of the 42 seats on the city council were due to be up as a result of ward boundary changes.
The news comes after the Electoral Commission said on Thursday the polls should be delayed until the autumn to "mitigate" the impact of the virus.
Downing Street said it would be impractical to go ahead with the elections as planned, as they would come during the peak of the spread of the virus.
