At the last meeting of the General Purposes Committee of the Corporation, the Surveyor reported the receipt of plans for the erection of 14 houses on the Court estate.

I he plans were passed. At the same meeting, Councillor Jarman, said he had ueen asked by inhabitants of Cunliffe-street and Spring- >oad whether something could not be done to put these roads in a better state of repair. They had informed him that the steam roller had never been seen there, and, •'peaking personally, he had no hesitation in saying that they were the two worst roads in the town. Councillor Rowland: It would be difficult to match them. The Surveyor : Vernon-street is worse. Councillor Rowland : Gerald-street is also in a bad state. The Surveyor : Yes, but nothing like Vernon street. It is difficult to do anything to Gerald-street until the carting in connection with the extensions has ceased. Councillor Jarman said he would like an answer to his question as to whether something could not be done with regard to Cunliffe-street and Spring-roaL They were in a fearful state at present. The Surveyor said that Cunliffe-street was repaired about two and a half years ago. Councillor Jarman said that the only work done was in connection with the footpaths. The people who lived there and paid rates were entitled to have a decent street, and they had informed him that the steam roller had never been there. Alderman Williamson said the street was all right originall/, but it had been worn out by the weather. After further discussion, the Surveyor promised to do what he could in the matter.
