Accreditation the Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 08/09/1876


            The monthly meeting of this board was held on Monday evening (04/09), at the Board-room, West Terrace, Redcar. Present:- Messrs. J. H. Webster (chairman), Coulson, Crabtree, Harrison, Mallaby, and Patterson; J. G. Thompson (clerk), and D. D. Bookless (surveyor).

Minutes having been read and confirmed, the Clerk reported that he had written to Superintendent Prest with reference to the furious driving of horses and ponies on the beach, to the great danger of persons promenade in thereon, and that he had been informed by Police Sergeant Alexander that his attention had been called to the matter, and that he (the Sergeant) would exercise a strict supervision in future. The Clerk next reported that he had received a letter from the Local Government Board, empowering that Board to borrow £800, into sums of £400 each, one of which, for sewerage works, was to be repayable in thirty years, and the other, for street improvements, to be repayable in five years. It was resolved on the motion of Mr. Harrison, seconded by Mr. Crabtree, that application be made to the Yorkshire Insurance Company for loans of the amounts mentioned. A letter was also received from the Earl of Zetland’s solicitors, asking what steps the Board intended to take with reference to the main sewer in Redcar Lane, which had been laid down at the expense of the late Earl, and which it was alleged the Board were using without sanction, and without making any payment for its use. After some discussion, the Clerk was directed to reply to Lord Zetland’s solicitors, denying the Board liability to make any payment for the use of the sewer. The surveyor reported a series of leakages in the water supply pipes, near Upleatham, and he was instructed to take out the present sanitary pipes and replace the same with metal pipes were necessary. A committee consisting of the Chairman, and Messrs Coulson, Crabtree and Patterson, was appointed to meet the chairman of the Gas Company with reference to the charges for public lighting. This was the whole of the business.
