Ten councillors and a member of the public attended the July 4 meeting.
A resident from Church Street, who has served in the police for 27 years, made a plea for action to be taken over the speeding traffic in Church Street and Millway. He said traffic had passed his house, in a 30mph zone, at an estimated 70mph. Others present agreed with the problem.
Chairman Colin Pearce said the council submitted requests for traffic-calming every year but got no support. There had been no accidents and the financial outlay was, therefore, not justified. Residents were urged to write to Cambridgeshire County Council to highlight the problem.
The clerk reported on the expected White Paper on local government changes. The trend was towards devolution of power.
The council's help had been offered to the head-teacher at St Ivo School to work in partnership on improvements for safer routes to school.
The leisure committee was authorised to proceed with and take decisions on the new ball court project. The plan was for the court to be erected next to the play area, as far away as possible from any houses. The old court will then be turned into extra car parking, including disabled facilities.
