SIR - I write regarding a letter I received from Welwyn Hatfield Council informing me of a planning application.
The letter was simply addressed to The Occupier and started with Dear Sir/Madam. I would have hoped the council would know me after paying council tax for 18 years!
The letter said I could look at the application on their website after three days.
But on day three, I found out the letter should have stated four days and not including the date of the letter.
Then I found out the case officer, gave me an inaccurate application number.
I emailed the case officer anyway, with my opinion on the planning application.
- 1 Hertfordshire zoo Paradise Wildlife Park to temporarily close to the public in January
- 2 Man in stable condition following Hatfield stabbing
- 3 The latest court results for Welwyn Hatfield and Potters Bar
- 4 Here's what we know so far about the new Covid variant
- 5 Concerns raised over structural integrity of Shredded Wheat factory building
- 6 15 adorable rescue pets in Hertfordshire looking for loving new homes this Christmas
- 7 How Hertfordshire’s coronavirus figures compare to last year's lockdown
- 8 Sir Elton John to play two Hertfordshire shows at Watford FC's Vicarage Road ground in 2022
- 9 Fire at University of Hertfordshire destroys kitchen
- 10 Motorcyclist "seriously" injured after car crash in Welwyn Garden City
Two days later, I received yet another first class stamped envelope, this time with my name on the envelope. But the letter started with Dear Sir/Madam again.
Why didn't the case officer email me back? I communicated via email. There was no need for an urgent expensive reply.
This is just a small example how this useless, taxpayers' money-wasting council continues to operate under incompetent leadership.
The council could save £100k per year by NOT using first class stamps, and a further £100k using emails instead.
