PROPOSAL FOR ROTORUA
The establishment of a transit camp in Rotorua on the lines of that at Western Springs, Auckland, was mooted at a meeting of the Rotorua Borough Council to-night by the Mayor, Mr. P. A. Kusabs, and the proposal was enthusiastically supported.
The Mayor said the council had the opportunity of buying a building suitable for removal to the municipal motor camp, where permanent cooking and other facilities were already installed. When the units were no longer required as a transit camp they could be converted into suitable hutments as part of a permanent holiday camp.
It was agreed that the Mayor and the engineer, Mr. H. B. Goodman, should visit Auckland to gain a J the necessary information, and the purchase of the building was left in the hands of the Town Planning Committee to act if necessary.
