Letter archive online

This article was published in 2004, in Newsletter 56.

We’ve begun the process of putting our archive of campaigning letters and consultation responses online. Point your web browser to:


If you don’t have web access, we can happily supply members with a printout of a list of contents or copies of individual items. Just let us know via our usual contact details.

So far only letters from 2004 are online but, by the time you read this, 2003 should be there, and earlier years will follow.

As well as increasing the accountability of the committee and the transparency of its actions, the archive will enable us to direct Councillors and other officials to previous correspondence.

Press releases, petition speeches and similar items will also be published and linked from this section.

We hope, in due course, that this will grow to be a fairly complete archive of the many hundreds of letters written to various officials over recent years.
