Dear Editor

With reference to Bettws Newydd (Western Telegraph, April 8th and 15th), I have always associated national park planners with finicky concern over details in hidden corners, which send home-improvers frantic.

However, this extraordinary vulgar pile will be a glazing monument to the planners’ crassness — if nothing more — for a depressingly long time.

What a crying shame we haven't people with taste and judgement (and humility) in these positions of power.
