TRAFFIC concerns are top of the West Hill Residents' Association agenda, and hopes are high a "missing link" in the village can boost pedestrian safety.
Residents' association members met with village representatives and Devon County Council's (DCC) highways manager last week to discuss road-related worries.
Top of a wish-list is a long-awaited "missing link" footway in busy West Hill Road, used by scores of schoolchildren, which is at the centre of a land wrangle and has been put on hold by highways bosses.
Residents also want a "village gateway" on West Hill Road to encourage drivers coming from Ottery to reduce thier speed when they enter the 30mph zone. It is hoped the "gateway" will be in place by April 2010.
