: Letter: More time for 'House'

Sir: Cllr Eric Flounders' decision to enforce the deadline for the removal of Rachel Whiteread's sculpture may be within the law, but his comments (Letters, 25 November) typify how inflexible the committee he chairs can be.

Under regular planning law, what is to prevent an extension of the deadline set by the original agreement so that more people can view this innovative work? Perhaps Cllr Flounders should remember that the Eiffel Tower was supposed to have been pulled down. It's hardly done Paris any harm.

Yours faithfully,
