VILLAGERS are demanding action over traffic problems and a lack of police.
The calls by Skelmanthorpe people are revealed in a new survey.
The impact of increasing traffic is the major worry for residents, with 87% of those surveyed saying it was a problem.
A lack of parking spaces also figured highly, with 63% of respondents saying it was a subject of real dissatisfaction.
The survey was carried out by Skelmanthorpe Community Action Group.
Spokesman Philip Wheeler said: "The results of this survey confirm that people in the village are very concerned about increasing traffic.
"This is an issue we have raised with Kirklees Council a number of times in relation to planning applications.
"But it's something they don't seem to take seriously, when granting planning consent for large developments in the village.
"The narrow roads and difficult junctions were never designed for the volumes of traffic using them today.
"But every year the council adds to the problem by allowing more development."
People in the village are also worried about the low level of policing.
It was the second highest subject of concern, with 83% of people expressing it.
Other issues that ranked high on the dissatisfaction scale were the lack of public toilets (67%), the lack of community facilities (56%) and the lack of seating in the village (54%).
However, the survey isn't all bad news; healthcare in the village is highly rated.
The general cleanliness of the village centre also scored well, with 68% of people expressing satisfaction.
Christopher Ward, the action group's chairman, said: "Our aim in conducting this survey was to ensure that we are representing the views of the community when we raise issues with Kirklees.
"It has also allowed people to raise other concerns that we weren't aware of.
"For example, we discovered that many parents with children at school in the village are very unhappy about the lack of a crossing to help their children cross a very busy road to get to and from school.
"This is such an important issue that we are making urgent representation to the council to rectify the situation," said Mr Ward.
