On 4 May 2017, voters in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will choose their first elected mayor.

It's part of the devolution deal that takes decision making from Westminster to our county, on important issues such as housing and transport.

The mayor will lead a combined authority of representatives from each of the existing unitary authorities, district and county councils.

The authority will have a budget of £800m over the next five years.

Ahead of the election, BBC Cambridgeshire will be finding out what you want from the new mayor.
