OVER 100 people attended a Police and Communities Together meeting in Axminster - with road maintenance marked as a top priority.
Representatives from East Devon District Council, Devon county highways, the local policing team and town councillors attended the 'Let's talk' meeting at The Guildhall last month.
A review of residents' comments showed that of 86 issues raised, maintenance of roads came out on top, with dog fouling second, and parking third.
Pc Darren Herridge said: "Before we set these priorities in stone, I would like to give residents a short amount of time to contact us if they disagree that this is what our partner agencies and ourselves should be concentrating on.
