TACKLING speeding motorists is the top priority of residents in a South Cambridgeshire village.

A parish plan produced by Great and Little Chishill has revealed that 80 per cent of adult residents and 50 per cent of 10-17-year-olds are concerned about community safety.

People's concerns were highlighted after the results of the parish plan were shared with the village at a meeting attended by County Councillor David McCraith, and village organisations such as the cricket club and Neighbourhood Watch.

Other concerns included the maintenance of pavements, availability and affordability of housing, activities for young people under 18, and the provision of public transport.

Steering group chairman Tim Scott said: "We had an incredible response from the initial questionnaire, and can now build teams to lead projects and address issues relating to the parish."

The provision of healthcare and recreational facilities were, considered as positive aspects of the village.
