SIR - We refer to the call from Stevenage Borough Council 'Let's get on with it - the west of Stevenage Development' (The Comet, July 20).

Don't they recognise that so many people look at the parched landscape to see what a scarce resource water has become and imagine the demand that thousands of extra houses will bring - as well as the stress of infrastructure affecting transport and other services. Surely it is not too late for the decision makers to think again?
