Conisbrough U.D.C.
Temporary houses

Lengthy discussions took place on a minute stating that the surveyor had reported that as there was apparently no other suitable land available that could be economically developed, the existing open spaces on the housing scheme, particularly Daylands Avenue, Warren Road and Pryor Road, the children’s playground of Park Road, and the council land on Station Road, should be utilised to accommodate 48 temporary houses.

The minute was finally approved.

When Coun. B. Roberts raised for consideration the matter of bypass in some of the existing sites and going into cheaper land higher up, the surveyor said that drainage would then involve them in a heavy capital expenditure so that the cheaper might prove the more expensive in the long run.

The minute was approved.
