Laura Razzell, rural housing enabler from Camridgeshire Action with Communities in Rural England, attended the latest Parish Council meeting and spoke on the proposed provision of affordable housing. The scheme will be available only to those who already live in the parish or who have strong ties with family members in the parish. There are 51 people on the housing list for Leverington, but the council needs to identify their needs. This will be discussed at the next meeting, but there is a possibility that a public meeting will be called for those people who are interested. It was reported that the police would be visiting certain roads and homes in Leverington during September to have an informal chat with parishioners. A number of jointly-funded minor improvement schemes were put forward for discussion. It was resolved to put forward the proposal of a footpath the length of Ringers Lane, joining the Gorefield Road and Leverington Common paths. Points are awarded at county level for all schemes submitted throughout the county. Two schemes were submitted in 2005, but neither was successful. The county highways department is inspecting all street lights and currently there are two in The Chase that need to be renewed. From correspondence received from parishioners, traffic calming still needs to be pursued and more footpaths repaired and installed. There is also concern from parishioners as to the developments planned. The council always inspects each application site and its observations are sent to Fenland District Council. The retaining of conservation areas is of paramount importance.
