Municipal Notes. I Housing Scheme. I The all important question of housing is being taken up in real earnest by the Corporation. At the last meeting, Lady Howard said that the need for addi- tional houses was as great in Llanelly as in any town in the country. Everyone familiar with local conditions will agree with this view. Application has already been made for sanction to erect 600 houses in the town, but the Looal Government Board "do not consider that, on the information before them, they could at present sanction loans for the purpose of a housing scheme at Llanelly." Undeterred by this refusal, the Corpor- ation have now appointed a committee to prepare a caw for submission to the Ministry of Munitions. The committee will include the Mayor, Ald. R. P. Thomas, Nathan Griffiths, and Council- lors Dan Williams, Evan Roberts and B. Sherlock. I Land adjoining Gt. Paul.'s Depot. The Borough Surveyor reported that ho had communicated with Mr. John Thomas with reference to his reducing the price of £1,400 asked by him for his interest in this land, but that Mr. Thomas was not prepared to do so. The Surveyor further reported that Mr. Mansel Lewis con- sidered the sum of L570 for the freehold a fair price (being equal to 25 years pur- chase), but he is agreeable to reduce the figure by £ 5. The Committee considered the matter and decided that they could not entertain Mr. Thomas' offer. I Electric Lighting Contract. I The Deputy Town Clerk read a letter from Mr. A. H. Beatty offering an abate- ment of 12s. 6d. per incandescent lamp standard per annum, provided the Cor- poration takes over the responsibility for lamp renewals afid maintenance; the current to be supplied by the Company at the lampholder, and maintenance and renewals up to this point to remain the responsibility of the Company. No change is proposed as regards the arc r lighting. The committee directed the Borough Surveyor to report fully upon the proposal. I Building Plans. I f The plan submitted by Mr. Joseph l Jones for additions to No. 2 Lloyd street, was reported to be in accordance with bye-laws, and accordingly approved. The plan presented by Mr. Fred Arthur for additions to four houses in Prospect place, the taking down of two old cottages in Gilbert road, and building threo houses on the land is recommended to the Town Council for approval. With reference to the offence committed by Mr. John Evans, contractor, in allow- ing a house at Park Crescent to be occu- pie,d without having obtained a certificate of completion in respect thereof, the oom- mitiee recommend that one month's notice to carry out the necessary work be given to Mr. Evans, proceedings to be taken. in the event of non-compliance therewith. I Certificates. I The following certificates were author- ized to be granted:- Mr. H. Harries: 1 house in Trinity rd. Mr. John Evans: 1 house in Park Cres- cent (No. 9). [ Collector's Return.
