OWING to limited space in last week’s edition of the Guardian, the article on the Redrow appeal failed to cover the involvement of the Hartford and Greenbank ward councillors and Hartford parish council.

This not only failed to encapsulate all the hard work put in to presenting a case based on material planning considerations, it also gave a completely negative impression of the commitment involved.

It’s necessary to correct this impression in order to reassure all the residents of the ward that their councillors and parish council are dedicated to seeking the best outcome for them in all matters and, in this case, many hours were put into researching evidence to support our case.
