Conway Housing Proposals. At the Corporation meeting at Conway, on Wednesday, the following report of the Housing and Improvement Committee was submitted Certain sites were suggested for the building thereon of workmen's dwell- ings, and it was unaimously resolved That the Borough Surveyor reports to the next meeting as to the suitability of these sites, with the measurements, &c.' It was further resolved that the Borough Surveyor be also instructed to report to the next meeting upon any suitable site in the Borough for the building thereon of work- men's dwellings." Alderman Netherwood said he was in the chair at the meeting of the Committee, and the minutes did not convey the least idea of what happened. He was sorry that Coun- cillor R. Jones was not present, because it was an injustice to him that the minutes did not appear fully, as it was a great and important subject. In his way, Councillor Jones had been trying to bring forward a housing scheme, and they fully expected, after so many years, that something tangible would be brought forward. He (Councillor Jones) moved in the Committee that the Surveyor report on the Town Ditch as a suitable site for workmen's dwellings. It was pointed out that the area of Town Ditch was not sufficient to comply with the Council's Bye-Laws, and it was also pointed out, and Councillor Jones had to admit, that the houses would be facing the Town Walls. In order to get sufficient room for the houses, Councillor Jones was going to lessen the width of the present road, and it was pointed out by the Surveyor that the road could not possibly be more than 12 feet wide, and the Council's Bye-Laws distinctly stated 36 feet. He expected that something of that would be in the minutes. It was no busi- ness of an authority like the Corporation to create slums. It was their duty, if there were any slums, to wipe them away and give the workmen the healthiest spots in the Borough. He moved that this was a true record of what took place, and that the re- port be referred back. Councillor Stott seconded, and it was agreed to.
