Join our subscription service to receive an email notification every time we post new content on our website.
We offer notifications for news, service updates and tree-work schedules.
Subscribe or update your subscription
Read our privacy notice (below) then choose which content you want to receive email updates about.
- We publish news to keep the local media up to date on a range of information about our services by way of news (or press) releases. Their intended audience is the local media, but you can sign up for alerts for these and other news articles.
- We publish updates if there is any disruption to a service, or to tell you about any improvements or changes we are making.
- We publicise all planned maintenance work to trees. We make our tree-work schedules available for public comment for up to 20 working days before work is due to begin.
We have a new online consultation and engagement platform, where people who live, work, and visit Cambridge can participate actively in our decision-making process.
Register on the platform to receive updates about consultations. This is separate to the email update subscription above.
