MISSION BAY BLOCK COMPENSATION CLAIM The award of the Compensation Court which heard the claim of St. John's College Trust Board (Mr. Cocker) for £6375 in respect to a block of lanfl taken by the Auckland Education Board (Mr. Towle) under the Public Works Act, was announced to-day. The land, comprising eight acres, three roods, thirtyseven perches, in Kepa Road, Mission Bay, was taken for the purposes of an intermediate school. The Court, Mr. Jusjice Callan and Messrs N. J. W. Kenny and W. H. Lunn, heard evidence in June, and stated a case for a Full Court as to the basis of valuation. In July the Full Court decided that the basis should be the value of the land on the assumption that claimant offered the land in December, 1942, for sale to purchasers in lots according to a sub-division made by the claimant. On this basis, the Compensation Court fixed the compensation for the taking of the land at £6375, and fixed costs to be paid by the respondent at £175 16/2.
