An assumption

I WOULD like to respond to Mr R Davis' letter in your September 5 edition, called "Ticking the right boxes".

I WOULD like to respond to Mr R Davis' letter in your September 5 edition, called "Ticking the right boxes".

It is unclear on what basis Mr Davis draws his assumptions and clearly I don't believe he has taken the time to talk to the very competent and experienced officers the authority employs in managing its highway network.

I can assure Mr Davis, from personal experience, that the officers employed within Highways are technically qualified, and have a range of generic skills to deliver sustainable improvements across the borough. Furthermore, they are both respected by the community and valued by the authority for the delivery of a multitude of key projects.

If it would help Mr Davis to understand the role of this important team, I would like to extend to him the opportunity of discussing his perception in more detail on a one-to-one basis.

Jim Harte, Acting Corporate Director, Community Services,

Solihull Council.
