Sanitary Condition of Dyserth, Meliden, and Towyn. LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD INSPECTOR'S REPORT. CONDEMNATIONS & SUGGESTIONS. Drainage of Dyserth Demanded. L THE MELIDEN CONUNDRUM. r Annexation Proposals for 7ozvyn-Prestatyn. For some time past the sanitary condition of the growing villages of Meliden and Dyserth has occupied the attention of the local authorities. An adverse report by the Medical Officer of Health for the District had been the cause of an appeal being made to the Local Govern- ment Board to send an inspector for the purpose of inquiring into the real condition of the district from a sanitary point of view. The Local Government Board acceded to the request, and Dr. W. W. E. Fletcher, one of the Board's medical staff, was instructed to visit and inspect the district. The inquiry commenced in Feb- ruary last, and in its scope was included the whole of the St. Asaph (Flintshire) and the St. Asaph (Denbighshire) Rural Districts. The locality known as Towyn, Pres- tatyn, being under the jurisdiction of the St. Asaph Council, was also included in the inquiry. Dr. Fletcher investigated all the points on which there was a difference of opinion between the local Medical Officer and the Councils concerned, and also made a sanitary survey of the whole district. Much public interest was awakened at the time of the enquiry, and the inspector's report which in effect was to form either a justification or a condemna- tion of the Rural Councils, was awaited with some trepidation. The report has just been pub- lished. It consists of seventeen closely-printed folio pages, and gives in detail the inspector's opinions regarding the sanitary condition of the district. The report upholds in every res- pect the attitude of the local medical officer, and goes so far as to recommend an increase in his salary. It admonishes the two Councils to pay greater attention to their duties, and calls upon the St Asaph Council to provide proper drainage for Meliden and for Towyn Prestatyn. Regarding the latter, the report suggests the transfer of this portion of Meliden to the Pres- tatyn Urban District, so as to solve the sewerage problem. It also advises that steps be taken to pro- vide Dyserth with proper sewerage. The extension of the water-supply in these districts is likewise recommended, as is also a scaven- ging system for Dyserth. ♦
