SIR - I would encourage as many people as possible to respond to the consultation on the landscaping of both car parks at Stanborough Park.

This finishes on Friday, August 7, 2009.

Reading some of the letters in your paper, I really wouldn't wish residents to forego their right to participate purely because they thought their view would not be taken into account.

When the council took the hard decision to remove the trees in the south car park it had to weigh up strong technical advice and recommendations against public opinion.

It may have been an unpopular decision, but it was the right one. The trees were severely decayed.

The consultation running now, is for the replacement of the felled trees and a programme for managing the north car park trees.

The task and finish group, that I chair, took all the necessary information and formulated consultation options from this. All views expressed during the consultation will be considered and presented back to the group.

The group will then use the data to agree a recommendation that will go to the responsible committee for approval.

If you care about the landscape of WGC, I urge you to get involved.

Forms are available at the council offices, Stanborough Park, Campus West library entrance and online at www.welhat.gov.uk
