1884 10 11 Redcar Local Board of Health Meeting

Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the Sea 11/10/1884


          The monthly meeting of this Board was held On Monday (06/10)

          The medical officer reported that the sanitary condition of Redcar was continuing good.

          With respect to the kerbing and flagging of the footpath abutting the Esplanade, the Chairman reported that three of the owners of property had waited on them at their committee meeting on Friday night last (03/10), and stated that they were unwilling to assist the Board unless the whole of the property-owners in front agreed to do so. He thought that an erroneous impression had been created, and that if the owners were given to understand that the Board was willing to pay bear half the cost they would not object to pay the other half. On this motion the Surveyor was instructed to prepare an estimate of the cost for each block of buildings, and present them, where possible, to the owners individually and report at the next meeting of the Board.

          Mr Brown was deputed to wait on the Postmaster and endeavour to arrange for the erection of a pillar letter-box at the High end of the High Street.

          Mr Brown moved and Mr Pattison seconded that the lamps on the north side of the Esplanade be retained, but the amendment of Mr Hood was carried to retain the lamps on the south side.

          Mr Brown called the attention to the storing of boats on the Esplanade during the winter, and said that they caused annoyance by obstructing the sand. A resolution was passed, to the effect that no boats would be allowed to be permanently stored there during the winter, no objection being made to their being drawn up for a short time during a storm.
