Llandilo Rural District Council. A special meeting of the above Council was held at the Union Offices on Wednesday of last week, Mr. John Richards, Chairman, presiding. The object of this meeting was tc confer with Mr. Chappell, Inspector under the Local Government Board, with regard to the housing needs of the area, and the steps it was proposed to be taken to meet those needs. It was stated that 112 houses were required within the district, and the Inspcctoi explained at length the conditions under which the Local Government Board would be prepared to make them an advance to meet the expen- diture to the extent of three-fourths of the costs during the first seven years. Loans ior the building of houses would be made re- payable at the expiration of 60 years, and, in the case of land, 80 years. The maximum number of houses that could be built on i%r. acre of land in the agricultural districts would be eight, and in the towns twelve. He urged the importance of their making their appli- cation and formulating their scheme as scon as possible. Mr. Evan Jones, the Building Inspector, stated that there were 99 empty houses in the district, of which a goodly number will have to be pulled down. It was stated by members that where cot- tages formerly occupied by labourers had been uninhabitable they had been pulled down, and others had not been built in their place, and the land belonging thereto had been added to the adjorning farms. A discussion took place over the acquisition of common land on the Black Mountain for building "purposes" and allotments. The Inspector advised the Council to com- municate with the Local Government Board and ascertain from them the teorms upon which they would obtain such land. In the result, a Committee of the whole Council was appointed to prepare a scheme in conjunction with the Building Inspector and Clerk, to be laid before the Local Government Board.
