PORTHCA WL DISTRICT COUNCIL I 3fr. John Elias, J.P., presided at the fort- I nightly meeting of the Porthcawl Urban Dis- trict Council on Monday evening. There were. also present Messrs. J. Grace, W. J. Griffin, David1 Jones, W. J. Jackson, and Jas. Coombs, with the deputy clerk (Mr. W. Chorley), a.nd the surveyor and inspector <3Ir a I Rhys W. Jones). LOCK'S COMMON DRIVE. A ittter from 3ir. J. E. Blundell, heir to the estate. of 31rs. Gordon (Nottage Court) contained an intimation that neither he nor Mrs. Gordon would have any objection to the continuation: of the drive along the Lock's Common as far as the" Rest." He thought, however, that it would be. better that the present cart track should be followed. It appeared that a committee of the Coun- cil had met 31r. Blundell on the Common, and it had been provisionally arranged that the Council should obtain the necessary stone for the work from a portion- of the Common. Mr. Griffin proposed that Mr. Blundell and Mrs. Gordon be thanked for their kindness. 31r. Coombs seconded, and it was carried. AMUSEMENTS. Mr. C. Green-head, Preston-road. London, wrote offering to arrange for a first-class band and concert party to visit Porthcawl during the summer months. The Chairman This gentleman is rather early in the day. 31r. Coombs: We left the. selection rather late last summer. 3fr. D. Jones- moved that the Works Com- mix toe be- asked to consider the (rue:,tion. Hi is waiir seconded by Mr. Jackson and to. 31ILFORD HAVEN S REQUEST. The Council had resolved at a special meet- ing to support the application- of Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven Chamber of Com- merce for a, naval base at MiJfcrd- Haven. A letter was now read from tbe- secretary of that body thanking the Council for the promised support, and stating that the course to he ydnpied in order to bring about the de- si red establishment of a naval base in the Channel would'be communicated to the. Coun- cil at a. later date. LICENSE. Messrs Holwell and Co. applied for a license to store petroleum in, their premises at Sta- tion-road. On the motion of Mr. Jackson, the. Sur- veyor was directed to present v, report to the Works Committee, on the subject. WATER. 3IAIN. The Works Committee liaving further con- sidered the. application of Mr. T. D. Bevan. Danyhm Farm, for a water supply, re-com- mended the Council: to proceed with the lay- ing of a waterm-am- at the first available op- i port unity. 3Ir. Griffin proposed that the surveyor be directed to put. the work in hand "llcn con- venient.—Carried. FROST AND PIP'ES. Mr. Grace proposed that the surveyor be instructed to givo the property owners in the district notice to put all stand pi pec- inside their premises. The present arrangement, be said, meant a loss- to the owner 5 them selves and to the ratepayers, generally. Mr. D. Jones seconded. He .?:. d the iie-cessitv for taking this course was more- ap- parent that evening, having regard to the damage done to the pipes as the result of the frost lhan it was when the question came before the. Works Committee. The Council inchided this in their water regulations, which were to be enforced in a mouth or so. Mr. Griffin opposed the motion, as he con- sidered it unnecessary to give a notice deal- ing with only one part of the Coor.cilV water regulations. It would not be wise to harass people in this way by enforcing one regula- tion. The Chairman agreed with 31r. Griffins views. Mr. Jackson, did not see. that -any harm would be done by adopting the mctio) it wonkl only mean giving the house-owners preliminary notice. No-one could (], that there was a. great necessity to makp, this al- teration. having regard to the. large number of pipe breakages which, bad occurred that day, resulting in a- great waste of v. ate M-r. Grace, replyin-r to the discussion, said there was such a waste going on at present that anyone who did not vote, for the motion was certain to be defeated1 when lie went be- fore the, electors next. (Laugliter.V Three voted each way, and! the Chairman gave his casting-vote against the motion. Mr. Grace: All right; it'll he in the Gazette." (Laughter.) The Chairman Never mind. THE ESPLANADE. Th* Works Committee liad considered a letter from Messrs. Smith and Co., the con- tractors for the extension to the esplanade sea vvei?, requesting a further payment in respect of the work carried out. The com- mittee recommended the Council to reply that they could not makp. any further pay- ment until the outstanding differences be- tween the surveyor and the contractors had been settled. On the motion of 31 r. Griffin, the recom- IIK -idatioii was adopted.
