Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object strongly to this application. The applicant's own assessment of the condition of the trees shows that there is no justification for their removal. We are completely opposed to the removal of mature forest trees save in exceptional circumstances. Their value to the general amenity and street scene extends far beyond their immediate surroundings. If necessary the trees could be reduced slightly but removal is not justified. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
