PENYBONT RURAL COUNCIL. There were present at the fortnightly meeting of the Penybont Rural District Council at Bridgend on Saturday Mr. Griffith Edwards, J.P. (presiding), Mr. Thos. Rees (vice-chairman), Mr. J. 1. D. Nicholl, J.P., Rev. R. Johns, Messrs. W. Morgan (Sker), Daniel Samuel. T. -J. Davies. J. G. Loveluck, E. Hopkin, T. Penhale, Howell Williams, Dd. Thomas, T. Butler, D. H. Price, with the clerk (Mr. R. Harmar Cox) and the surveyor (Mr. Ernest Jenkins). CEFN CARFAN ROAD. The Surveyor reported that the tenant of the land near the Cefn Carfan Road would not allow the work of improvement to pro- ceed for some months, and as Colonel Turber- vill's consent was subject to that of the ten- ant, the matter would have to be left in abeyance. Mr. T. Rees thought the work should be proceeded with as soon as possible, as there were so many out of employment. He moved that the chairman and surveyor wait upon the tenant with the view to arriving at an arrangement that the work should proceed forthwith. This was agreed to. BRYNCETHIN FOOTPATH. A letter was read from Mr. Thomas Rich- ards, of Rogerstone, with regard to the re- quest of the Council that he should give up a portion of land near Bryncethin for the pur- pose of road widening. He was not prepared to state yet what conditions he would impose with regard to giving the Council the land. He was anxious that the footpath passing near Llan Farm should be diverted, and hoped that the Council would support him in that matter so that there would be no need to go to the Quarter Sessions. The Chairman I suppose the condition on which we shall have the land is that we will support him in the diversion of the path. Mr. Price asked whether the diversion would be a convenience to the public. The Clerk I see no reason why it should be made, and Mr. Richards prives no reason. Mr. Nicholl: The Council cannot undertake to go to Quarter Sessions. Mr. Howell Williams said the reason was evident: it was desired to divert the path so that it would not be so near to the farm- house. Mr. Nicholl did not think the proposed diversion would add to the convenience of the public. The public Had! a right to go over the footpath and anything the Council did in the matter would not interfere with that right. The Clerk said he failed to see that any benefit would accrue. Mr. Nicholl moved that the clerk inform Mr. Richards that the Council had no right to interfere in regard to the path, and re- quest him for a reply to the Council's inquiry regarding the land. Mr. Price seconded, and it was carried. ABERKENFIG ROAD. Mr. E. Hopkin complained that West- street, Aberkenfig, was in a deplorable state, and he moved that the clerk write the owner requesting him to put it in order. It was a wonder that someone had not met with an ac- cident there. Mr. Nicholl: Is it a private street? The Clerk Yes. Mr. Nicholl: Then we have no right to in- terfere. The Clerk: That is so, unless there is a nuisance in existence. Mr. Hopkin said the Council had a right to interfere on the grounds of a nuisance. The motion was carried. PANT MAWR QUARRIES. The Clerk read correspondence with Messrs. Thomas Bros., of Newport, with regard to the railroad from the Pant Mawr Quarries, near Cornelly, to the G.W.R. line which, it was alleged, would interfere with the old highway. It was stated that Messrs. Thomas were arranging for the lease of land so that the railroad could' be diverted. Mr. Rees said the Council should do every- thing they could to assist Messrs. Thomas, who would no doubt employ a number of men. He moved that the matter be ad- journed for a month. Mr. Loveluck The rails are there now, and it is impossible to take a vehicle over the road. The Chairman: Of course, there is very little traffic over the road. The motion was agreed' to.
