sionl arrangements particularly with a

2. Mr. CAT( A'OLE and Mr. HOCHOY,
Lahour Commi sioner. Trinidad who was

up in performing fire Brigade duties
. The Chairman informed the Council that

that. at a meeting of the Central Housing
Authority, applications under the Build-
ings By-Law were approved or disapprov-
ed as recommended by him.
That in the case of Mr. Donald Shilling.
ford however; it was felt that although
the application, in so far as the building
was concerned, met with the standards
required by the regulations, it was never-
theless one of policy with respect to such
parcels of land, that such matters be re-
ferred to the Roseau Town Council for its
views and recommendations.
The Chairman informed the Meeting
that this matter had been referred to the
Council to decide upon a policy for dealing
with those small corner lots.


As far as Mr Shillingford's lot was con-
cerned it was alright. but what was to be
,done with the adjoining corner lot which
was too small for. a sizable house. There
I were two other Jots of similar character
to be dealt with, one was wned by Leo
Joseph at the corner of Great George and
Great Marlborough Streets, and the other
was Mrs Payne's in Church Stieet.
Fir purposes-of Town Planning, he was
of the opinion that if ,he owners of the
la-rger lots would not sell some land to the
smaller owner the Central Housing Autho
rity should step in purchase both lots re-
divide them and offer them for.sale to the
former owners. It Mr. Shillingford would
*co-operate this matter could be easily set-
tied.

arrange tur a joint Meeting of the Central
Housing Authority and the Town Council
to inspect the lots in question and decide
what should be done about them
