Ministry Recommends More Parks
The Minister of Health has informed the Hull Corporation that he considers that the provision for public and private open spaces, under the town-planning scheme for the northern and western divisions of the city and neighbouring areas, is " meagre."
He suggests that the corporation should reserve much more extensive portions, and indicates for the purpose a large tract of land which includes Brantingham Dale. The Dale is a popular resort of motorists and cyclists from klull.
