Town Centre Residents' Parking Scheme.
Improvements to the footpath at Sefton Road to Mossfield Road so as to make it into a cycle route.
Traffic calming measures at the junction of Rake Lane/Lumns Lane.
Improving the pavements, filling the potholes and cutting back the trees at Rake Lane near the railway station.

At the Council meeting on 18th April, 2007, it was confirmed that the devolved highways budget would continue in 2007/08 with each Community Committee being allocated £100,000 to identify priorities for highway improvements. Members should appreciate that any over-spend on the schemes approved in 2006 will have to be met from this allocation and will be asked to agree to the Local Environment Task Group developing a list of projects, for submission to a future meeting of the Committee, which might be financed under the remaining budget.
