Commenting on letters from constituents about the governance of the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, North East Hertfordshire MP Sir Oliver Heald said:
“I have always supported the democratic elements of the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, namely two nominated councillors from the local councils, six elected governors and the governors who are put forward by the clubs and societies.
I have had a number of letters from constituents concerned that this may change and have made it clear to the Heritage Foundation that I think the democratic elements are important. This was something considered carefully by a Parliamentary Committee as the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation was set up and which the Committee supported. I see no reason to make any changes.”
