BAY-WINDOWS. An application was nnde by Mr. Edward Morris, High Street, for permission to convert the present front window on the ground and second floor into bay-windows. Mr. D. W. Jones proposed that the applica- tion be granted. Mr. W. T. Jones asked where this matter was to end. It was a great mistake to grant these applications. Mr. D. W. Jones said this place was wider than the parapet near Mr. Rees Morgan's pre. mises, and bay-windows had been allowed in that case. The Chairman said bay-windows would be the means of increasing the rateable value, as in case of re-valuation this would add materially to the valuation. Mr. D. Jones (joiner) wanted the Sub-com- mittee to fix the width of the encroachment. Mr. D. W. Jones could not see why any dis- tinction should be made between this and other places. Mr. Edward Jones seconded the motion, and the resolution was passed. GENERAL DISTRICT RATE.
