As keen readers of the Journal and devotees of the delightful town of Exmouth, we are aware that a multi-million pound plan is underway to revamp The Strand.
We understand that Devon County Council's Cabinet agreed to take �2 million from its capital programme to spend on the scheme, and East Devon District Council executive board has earmarked an extra �1 million.
In the same article, it was hoped that other parts of Exmouth would be 'enhanced and made more vibrant'. Although met with differing opinions by residents, we hope the revamping of The Strand will be a huge success, but we have tried in vain for years to get a little pollarding carried out to the trees on the slope by the zig-zag path, opposite The Beacon, and now we see major tree felling being carried out in The Strand. Is it too much to hope that plans to 'revamp' the rest of the town might include a much-needed pruning of these trees and shrubs?
