Can someone please explain to me why we have just spent many thousands of rate payers' money on rebuilding the two brick piers in Tudor Way, Hillingdon?
The piers do not form part of Hillingdon's history,nor do they represent any landmark.
The piers were built as purely a status symbol for the residents of Tudor Way when the houses were built.
Having them rebuilt now will serve the same purpose.
NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Gazette approached Hillingdon Council about the piers and received the following response from Philomena Bach, director of environment and consumer protection.
"Hillingdon Council wherever possible aims to preserve local heritage features in the borough to maintain the character of an area or place.
"The two brick piers in Tudor Way were damaged and considered dangerous.
"They were temporarily repaired and made safe as an interim measure in December last year, however in the long term required rebuilding.
"All works have been carried out following consultation with residents living in the road."
