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.
