LACK OF FORESIGHT." I MUMBLES-ROAD WIDENING SCHEME. WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN SAYED. Swansea Council met on the sands near the Slip to consider the proposed Mumbles- road widening scheme. The Council was almost fully represented and the Deputy Suiveyor (Air. Swarbrick) produced a plan of the proposed widening. fhe idea is on the town side to cut off the Victoria Park and Cricket Field from a, point near the Baths to the grand stand of ihe Cricket Field (which will remain), whilst on the other side it is proposed to exchange a portion of the promenade for a portion of the North- Western coal yard. The Recreation Ground wall will also be thrown into the road way, the footpath to be between the present avenue of trees. Subsequently the Council met at the Guildhall, the Mayor (Aid. Corker) in th £ chair, when Aid. Merrells moved a resolu- tion approving of the proposed widening, and requesting the Town Clerk to take the necessary steps for the carrying out of the scheme. Mr. Hill seconded. The Mayor said they were perfectly satis- fied that the proposed lines laid down were the most suitable. In reply to Mr. PoWlesland and Mr. Ben Jones, the Mayor said that details would be considered later. Mr. Hemmings asked if anv terms had been come to with the Mumbles Railway Company ? Ald. Merrells said that there had been no negotiations, but under the scheme the company themselves would have to do cer- tain work in the shape of removing the rails. They might rest assured that the Corporation w.ere not going to give anything away. Mr. Lee pointed out that terms should he arranged with the N orth- Western people, as their station yard might be curtailed. "APPALLING" LACK OF FORE- SIGHT. Aid. David Davies complained that the want of foresight of the Corporation was perfectly appalling. Nine-teen years age they sold the freehold to the company for £400. when they might have entered into a lease or a yearly tenancy. Ald. Davies further stated that the, Corporation must also get an equiva- I lent for the improvement from the Mumbles Railway Company, and that if the Cor- porattio-n failed to effect an exchange with the North-Western Company, the Mumbles Railway Company might be invited to nego- tiate. The resolution was carried.
