In answer to a question by Mr J. Newman about the other four acres in the prospective purchase, Mr Baigent said he understood that the City Council intended to subdivide that area into quarter-acre building sections, but he did not think this would mar Isel or the park. He did not feel that, in 25 or 40 years' time, it would be said that there was not enough room because the council had gone ahead with the plan to sell these four acres for building sections.
A brief discussion also took place about roading. It was explained that there would most likely be a road leading in from the present main road entrance (as now) and out by a road joining up with Marsden Road. Mr Baigent said he was unaware of any proposal to join up with the Ridgeway.
