A COPSE of protected trees in Louisa Terrace could be cut back with the blessing of the town council despite objections.

Owners of land opposite 9 Louisa Terrace have applied to cut and trim two hawthorns and a group of bay laurel trees.

However, Ian Whitmore, of Orchard Close, said: "I object to the application relating to a major coppicing of trees. The only reason for this work is to open up the sea views for the residents of this property. Exmouth needs to protect the few remaining areas of tree cover in the town centre, especially when this strip of land is effectively a park area."

Councillor Ian Stewart said he had no objection subject to a recommendation from the district council's tree officer. The plans now go to district planners.
