A PROBABLE SITE. A deputation of Grey Lynn Borough Councillors, headed by their Mayor (Mr. G. Sayers), waited on the Council to ask the Council to reconsider a decision it might have arrived at in reference to the abattoir site, which was likely to be leased for workmen's homes or something of the kind. He drew attention to the by-road, called the bull-track, which' was not a road in any sense other than that it had been used as a public highway for many years. If the Council was likely to cut the land up it would be fifeneftcial to the Council and the sections if sufficient land were given to make a 66ft. road. They also suggested that if the Council found it necessary to build upon the site they should only build near the road. The site was admirably suited for a reserve, but was not suitable for building on. Another member of the deputation said that it was the only way of traffic from the new deviation to the former site of the abattoir and, therefore,_it was necessary that a road should be made there. The Mayor (Mr. C. D. Grey), who said that the matter had been under consideration by the Finance Committee, threw out a suggestion that representatives of the Grey Lynn Council should meet City Cbuncil representatives and visit the land in question.
