A BREEZE OVER THE «COMMON.' A communication was read from the Clerk to the Rural District Council (Mr. Grimsley), asking whether the Parish Council were pre. pared to contribute the costs incidental to the procuring of a scheme for the regulation of the St. Asaph Common. Mr. Cleaver thought the Parish Council would not object to contribute what was reasonable. He suggested that an offer be made to the Dis- trict Council. Mr. Robert Jones remarked that the Parish Council should not put any obstacle in the way of the District Council to obtain powers for the regulation of the Common. The Parish Coun- cil should be prepared to contribute to the ex- tent of its power. If the District Council did take charge of the Common, they would have to see to the removal of the refuse heaps, and to consider whether people had a right to back doors opening on to the Common. Mr. J. P. Jones stated that he had property in the locality, and denied that the Council or anyone else could prevent people having back doors opening on to the Common. He did not consider it right that the Common should be handed over to the District Council, as that body did not appear to be able to look after anything they had. If the Parish Council could not retain possession of the Common, he would oppose the District Council having anything to do with it. The Chairman remarked that a joint commit- tee might be appointed to look after the Com- mon. Mr. J. P. Jones said that it could not be ex- pected that people living in Cwm and Meliden could have an interest in St. Asaph Common. The Parish Council was the proper authority to deal with the Common. He saw signs of no end of trouble if the District Council interfered with the back doors of houses. Mr. Robert Jones observed that he had only mentioned back doors incidentally. Mr. Cleaver said he thought that the District Council could hand over the powers they ob- tained for dealing with the Common to the Parish Council. Mr. J. P. Jones remarked that they did not want to spend much money on the Common. Mr. Cleaver: We want to make it present- able. Mr. Robert Jones We must spend money in planting trees and levelling. Mr. J. P. Jones The ratepayers of St. Asaph will never sanction the spending of dE80 or JE90 per annum there. I shall fight you to the end if you hand it over to the District Council, who cannot look after a bit of road. It was decided that a deputation should wait on Mr. Grimsley, to ascertain the probable cost of the scheme.
