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.

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.
