RHYL PROMENADE. Extension Scheme Rejected by the Ratepayers. On Monday night a public meeting of rate- payers was convened by the Rhyl Urban District Council to consider the proposal to extend the Eastern promenade. Mr G, A. Taverner presided, and was supported by several Councillors. The Chairman explained that the meeting had been called to ascertain the feeling of the ratepayers on the matter. The Council would abide by the decision they arrived at. Mr J. H. Ellis moved a resolution approv- ing of the application to the Local Govern- ment Board for a loan of £4,170 to enable the Eastern Promenade to be linked up with the Western Promenade. He explained that it was proposed to extend the Promenade a distance of 700 yards where it would join the other promenade at the Amphitheatre. On the land side of the wall they might lay out ornamental gardens, grass plots, a lawn tennis ground, or an open-air skating rink. He was convinced that with the wall up there would be a considerable saving in the cartage ot sand drift. The work would greatly improve the appearance of the town, and would also provide work for the unemployed. The cost, even apart from any saving on sand drift, would not work out at a penny in the pound. Mr A. L. Clews seconded, and pointed out that several heavy loan charges would be completed during the year. The cost of the improvement would be infinitesimal compared with the advantages gained. After considerable discussion the resolution was put to the meeting and lost by an over- whelming majority.
