BARRY LOCAL BOARD AND THE BARRY BILL. SPECIAL MEETING OF THE MEMBERS. THE COMPANY GRANT THE CONCESSIONS ASKED FOR. TERMS OF THE ARRANGEMENT. A special meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held on Monday afternoon last at the Board Room, Cadoxton, for the purpose of "considering a resolution which was to be proposed to the effect that the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, in order to protect the interests of the district, oppose the Barry Railway Company's Bill, 1894, and charge the rates of the district with the costs of sueh opposition." The members present were-Dr P. J. O'Donnell (chairman), Mr R. Forrest, J.P., Dr Treharne, Alderman J. C. Meggitt, Messrs J. J. Williams, George Thomas, W. Thomas (Cadoxton), J. Arthur Hughes (clerk)! J. C. Pardoe (surveyor), and A. E. Leyshon (inspector). The Clerk read the following letter which had been received that morning from the solicitors to the Barry Company with respect to the objections raised by the board to the Bill Cardiff, May 19th, 1894. Barry Bill, 1894. 1')0&'0 QTT> UT-. -u_- L DEAR SIR,—We return herewith the draft clauses and our clients are prepared to agree to the same as altered in red, but they suggest that instead of a clause being inserted in the Act that your clients, the Local Board, should take an agreement under the seal of the Barry Company. With reference to Sections 1 and 3 of the proposed clauses, our clients are advised that the Railways Clauses Act, 1845, sufficiently protects the points raised in these sections. As you are aware, the general Act imposes an obligation on the Company to make all necessary Mt-tifs, tunnels, culverts, drains, and other passages with such dimensions as will be sufficient at all times to convey the water, etc., way. With reference to Section 5, if the Local Board require the Company to abstain from using the land in question, the Board must pay the Company the fair value of the land. r When Mr Walker spoke to Mr Bell abonfeit he opi* asked for 36ft. roadway bridge where ^uch brideaV was made within the district of the Loeaf Boards £ £ Sub-section 6 should be confined to the sewers of the Local Board the pas and water pipe* are jOreadv* provided for by the General Act. « fe >3 We must apologize that our senior able to attend to this before.—Yours faithfully, DOWNING AND HANIX'OCK. In the course of a brief discussion which followed, Mr George Thomas remarked that he considered if an agreement was given by the Company nothing further was required. — Mr Meggitt also felt the concessions granted by the Company were all the Board could expect.—Mr J. J. Williams asked where was the public footpath to Palmerstown referred to in the Bill. He could not find anyone who knew where it was. — Dr O'Donnell I could have told you. Mr Williams, and we have proved to the satisfaction of the Barry Company that it is a public footpath.—Mr Forrest: So far as I understand, if a railway runs across a. public footpath it does not stop up that footpath.—The Chairman No, and all we ask for as a Board is proper protection for the public.— Mr George Thomas Is it not a matter for the Board of Trade to see that the footpath is not stopped up.-The Clerk No, the Local Board are the conservators of the public rights. It is, how- ever, for the Board to decide whether this foot- path is of sufficient public interest to the public to warrant the Board opposing the Bill.—Mr Forrest also pointed out that the railway bridge at Cole- brook was not in the Local Board district, and there was no intention on the part of the Company to interfere with the portion of road in the Board's district.—It was then unanimously resolved, on the motion of Mr Meggitt, that no further steps be taken by the Board to oppose the Barry Bill. Mr Forrest and Mr George Thomas, being members of the Barry Company, did not vote. -<
