Comet country on February 2 was refreshing in its openness and honesty. The reports from two parish councils identified why they have a successful and productive relationship with North Herts District Council and Herts County Council, ie, we all work as a team.

Contrast this with the advertisement placed by Letchworth Garden City Town Council the week before. We intend to set up a Grange Improvement Forum, NHDC has been working with residents of The Grange on a regeneration project since March 2005. We would like to establish a Business Forum for both the industrial area and town centre, there is already a Town Centre Partnership of which many town centre businesses are members and a member of the town council is a member of the executive committee. NHDC's failure to consult, I would like to assure the citizens of Letchworth Garden City that NHDC has considerably exceeded the minimum requirements for obligatory consultation.

Hopefully our Town Council will eventually realise that, for the benefit of the citizens of Letchworth Garden City, NHDC, the Town Council and LGCHF need to work as partners not competitors.

Cllr MICHAEL PATERSON, Baldock Road, Letchworth Garden City
