------------BARRY RE-DIVISION…


BARRY RE-DIVISION SCHEME AGREED TO. THE Local Government Committee of the Glamorgan County Council, at its quarterly meeting held at Cardiff on Thursday last, unanimously decided to sanction the scheme for the re-division of the Urban District of Barry into seven wards, with a representation of three members for each ward, making a total membership of the Council, under the new system, of twenty-one. This re-arrange- ment of the district will come into force in March of next year, when a General Election of Councillors will take place. The new wards will comprise the Barry and Cadoxton Divisions, the former consisting of the Park Ward, High-street Ward, Castleland Ward, and Dock Ward and the Cadoxton Division, the Holton Ward, Court Ward, and Cadoxton Ward. There is a general concensus of public opinion in favour of the new scheme in the Barry district, and the election of twenty-one members to constitute the new Council will probably be the most interesting contest that has taken place in the district since the memorable fight which resulted in the election of the first Barry and Cadoxton Local Board in 1888.
