SAL­IS­BURY, 13 Jan­uary 1917. — The or­di­nary meet­ing of the Sal­is­bury Town Coun­cil was held on Wed­nes­day even­ing, present were the Mayor (Mr H L Lezard), the Deputy Mayor (Mr E C Pull­brook), Messrs J Pas­coe, D E McCaus­land, B Wright, G El­combe, J C Pen­man and H Lan­dan, with the Town Clerk (Mr W W Jenk­ins).

It was re­solved to grant Mr W McCh­lery the op­tion of re­new­ing his leases on the com­mon­age for 25 years from De­cem­ber 31, 1926.

The Chair­man of the Com­mon­age Com­mit­tee (Mr El­combe) ex­plained that some time ago, plot hold­ers, prin­ci­pally at Hat­field, asked the Coun­cil to grant ex­ten­sions of their leases for 25 years af­ter the ex­piry of the present leases as they had no way of ob­tain­ing any ben­e­fit for im­prove­ments they might make.

This was agreed to. The pro­posal in this case was merely to bring Mr McCh­lery’s po­si­tion into line with the oth­ers.
