LYMPSTONE Parish Council has re-elected Rob Longhurst as its chairman.

Mr Longhurst was selected again after councillors were asked to vote on the election of a chairman at a parish council meeting held last Monday, May 11. Cllr Acca was re-elected as vice chairman.

"I'm absolutely delighted to have been given the chance to continue into my second year," said Mr Longhurst.

He anticipated there to be a number of issues of major importance to the Lympstone community to be dealt with in his second term as chairman.

"Obviously the Courtlands (Cross) development is going to be a big issue throughout the year. I can't see that going away from the agenda.

"We (as a council) will also be pursuing the cycle way matter with regards to safety."
