Would it be helpful if there was a bit more guidance, with teeth, from our borough council when it comes to design, decoration and planning matters in the town centres?
We were interested in the suggestion from the Welwyn Garden City Society that some rules would ultimately enhance the environment.
As a chamber we are very keen that John Lewis and the Howard Centre continue to prosper. And with them all other traders in the town centres.
Only by ensuring that WGC and Hatfield offer a particular and special experience will we thrive.
The watering down of the special historic garden city appeal is a danger to the prosperity of this town.
