About the Consortium
The London Stansted Cambridge Corridor Consortium is a partnership of public and private organisations covering the area north of Tech City, the City Fringe, Kings Cross, and the Olympic Park, up through the Lee Valley and M11/A10, and West Anglia Rail corridors to Harlow and Stansted, and through to Cambridge.
The partnership was formed to organise and promote what is a clear economic area, with strong inter-connections; commuting to work and learn patterns, clusters of industries and supply chains.
The area is linked by the West Anglia rail lines, as well as key road networks such as the A10 and M11. It is has a population of over 2 million people and growing. It is home to strong business clusters, ranging from high-tech digital and bio-medical to logistical, resource recovery and food manufacturing.
The consortium’s focus is to promote the economic development of the area, unlocking the potential of this successful but under developed area, without compromising the existing quality of life.
