LLANFRECHFA UPPER LOCAL BOARD. The ordinary monthly meeting was held on Monday, C. Conway, Esq., in the chair. There were also present-Blessrs H. Griffiths, H. Parfitt, D. Llewellin, G. Williams, R. Richards, and E. Francis. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. DRAINAGE MATTERS. The Surveyor laid before the Board his estimate of the cost of draining 12 houses, the property of Messrs Slade and Sage, at Pontrhydyrun, and also an estimate for laying pipes from Pontnewydd sewer to the gates at Cwmbran Churchyard. Mr Griffiths remarked that any defect in the drainage of the district ought to be dealt with at once, and prompt measures taken to secure an efficient system. The hot weather was coming on, and defective drainage was liable to breed disease and spread contagion. Mr Llewellin said that in the Panteg district they were building houses in a most disgraceful manner, although it was no business of theirs. Mr Griffiths observed with regard to the 12 cottages, that he hoped it would be a lesson to them to be more careful in passing plans. The drainage was the very first thing which ought to be looked into. Ultimately it was proposed by Mr Llewellin, and seconded by Mr Parfitt, That permission be granted to construct, in a suitable position, a cess- pool for the accommodation of Messrs Slade and Sages' houses, and that the owners of that property be called upon to provide an efficient scheme of drainage within 21 days, and in the event of such notice not being complied with, the Board do the necessary work, and charge the cost to the parties liable." -C-.trried. Mr Parfitt proposed That permission be given for making a drain between the canal and the churchyard, for the purpose of carrying off the sur- face water." Mr Llewellin seconded, and the motion was car- ried. THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE QUESTION. Mr Champion submitted amended plans tõthe Board for the construction of a slaughter house on his premises at Griffithstown, and a long conversa- tion ensued upon the matter. Mr Griffiths proposed That the plan of the slaughter house to be built by Mr Champion be ap- proved, subject to his providing a drain, as marked on plan (by the Board), and increasing to 12 inches the present pipe underneath the temporary road- way leading from the premises to Mr R. Richards's lane, and complying with the bye-laws of the Board." Mr Parfitt seconded the resolution, and it was at once carried. There was no other business, and the Board ad- journed.
