THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRESTATYN.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRESTATYN. A discussion took place last Saturday between several of our village fathers and the son of the principal Prestatyn landowner, which discussion, it is hoped, will result in assisting to a large extent the future develop- ment of the place. Advantage was taken of the presence amongst us of Mr H. D. McLaren, M.P., to talk over several matters which have of late been the subject of correspondence between Lady McLaren and the Prestatyn Council. These include the question of the control of the foreshore, and the agreement regarding the re-opening of Bodnant Avenue. Other matters affecting the welfare of the town came up for discussion, amongst these being the desirability of widening Bastion Road, the improvement of the awkward and dangerous corner at Penisa'rdre, and several other ques- tions. Mr McLaren agreed on the whole with the views expressed by the Councillors who were present at the interview, avowing his willing- ness to widen the portion of Bastion Road which is under the McLaren ownership. The approach to the railway bridge in High Street was also a matter which Mr McLaren thought should be looked into with a view to something being done, and it is possible that a strip of land may be presented to the town at this point. Should these two improve- ments be carried out, Lady McLaren will earn the grateful thanks of all residents who have the progress of the town at heart. Regarding the foreshore question, Mr McLaren wished to know the motives actuating the Council in desiring to secure the control. He was somewhat suspicious that the principal object was a sordid one— that the local authority had an eye to monetary gain in seeking to secure a lease of the shore. One of the councillors, however, hastened to assure Mr McLaren that such calculations had never entered the mind of the local authority. Public control is desir- able for several reasons, one of the principal being to enable the Council to frame proper rules for the regulation of bathing, so that there may be no repetition of the Coroner's remarks on a recent occasion. No definite conclusion was arrived at respecting Bodnant Avenue.
