Christmas coppicing conundrum

The scenario is a coppiced hazel in a back garden visible from a few public 
viewpoints but not prominent.  It is about 5m in height with many stems <20cm 
diameter and has been clearly coppiced on a regular basis in the past.  LA 
have placed a TPO on it and I wonder if that is really sustainable.  I would 
say that there is a strong case to continue the previous coppicing 
management, which realistically means that it has no significant potential to 
contribute to amenity.  What do you think?
