Cedars make way for pole dancers

SIR – I was utterly astonished and somewhat mortified to receive [the planning notice about the cedars being felled at Cedar Shade].

(Tree felling vandalism, Herald, April 4)

After having to watch the wanton destruction of the magnificent cedars, which would have survived another 100 years or more with sensible husbandry, I really do not know how I am expected to care what they chop down next!

I know if they want it down, they will cut it down. Neither EDDC nor Sidmouth Town Council made any convincing attempts to save the cedars (could we not afford to hire our own tree expert?)

Nobody in Sidmouth seems to have the know how to stop such developments. Does the law always work against the good guys?

Certainly, I will never vote for anybody in Sidmouth again but, being nearly 90, that will not bother them too much.

My compensation is that, most probably, I will not be here when such developers are striding down the Esplanade with their massed bands of experts, chanting 'down with that, that will have to go, that looks dangerous' etc.

Farewell Sidmouth, the all night bars and the pole-dancers are coming; trees make a mess anyway.
