Resolven Recreation Ground. Major Stuart, R.E., of the Local Government Board, conducted a public inquiry at Resolven on Wednesday as a result of an application from the Parish Council to borrow < £ 1,500 for the purpose of laying out a recreation ground on a five-acre site, given by Colonel Edwards Vaughan, Rheola.—Mr. Edward Powell (Neath) made the application on behalf of the parish council, and several rate- payers from Cwmgwrach appeared to oppose.—In placing the facts before the Inspector, Mr. Powell said the site ad- joined Rugby Street, and was about three miles from Cwmgwrach, where the opposition came from. The population of the parish-roughly 4,500—was grow- ing, and would continue to grow through rapid colliery development.—The In- spector remarked that the gift of Col- onel Vaughan was a very valuable one, but would the same consideration be shown to the inhabitants of Cwmgwrach, who lived three miles away, if a similar gift were made at their end of the par- ish?—Mr. Powell: Most certainly. In proportion to the population Cwmgwrach has been handsomely treated.—Dr. R. D. Prichard, chairman of the Resolven Parish Council, said there was a necess- ity for a recreation ground at Resolven, and it had his whole-hearted support.— Mr. Frank Beaman hoped that the loan would be extended over as long a period as possible.—Mr. T. Price, voicing the opposition from Cwmgwrach, contended that it was a non-revenue paying scheme. It would only benefit the inhabitants of Resolven, and he felt the ratepayers of Cwmgwrach should be exempted.
