LEVERINGTON Parish Council has been concerned at the traffic speeding problems, response time and lack of policing in the parish due to cuts and a letter had been sent to the Chief Constable.
A reply received from the Wisbech Sector Commander explained the position and he has been invited to attend a council meeting.
The County Council has also intimated that there are cutbacks in minor traffic management.
An inspection of all street lighting is to take place and the council has a major expense with a dangerous tree.
Health and Safely risk assessments are also a priority.
This means that the precept of 07/08 will reflect the added expenditure to keep the village in a good state of repair.
With 66 people on the housing list asking for Leverington as their first choice home and 350 putting it as their second choice, only seven residents attended a specially-organised meeting to provide affordable homes for the young people of the village and to make a parish plan to ensure ongoing facilities.
The council is backing the plans but this will be put 'on hold' until there is a public response or demand for the housing. Parishoners are reminded that a council election will beheld in May and to gain Quality Status the council needs nine elected members.
All other criteria for the status are in place.
