TABER, lAue. dry of --PROTECTING RESIDENTIAL AREAS. The following advertisement rocent- ly appeared in a Halifax paper: hereby given, that appll- --cation has been made to the Building Inspector by the undersigned for per- mission to erect a shop on west side i'of-Elm street between Chebucto road and Oak street.

J has. before it for consideration amendment ot the fire limits bylaw, whJei. If passed, will prohibit the of business places In the resi- -dentlal districts of the city. Thia legislation is in harmony with :Ihe efforts of the -Town Planning 'Branch of the Commission of Conser- which, for the protection'of residential areas, has consistently ad- the lonlng of towns and cities. Unless a property owner has some guarantee that his investment will be safeguarded, there Is little Inducement to bnild or improve a- home, even in .the beat residential districts, In most of our cities. In an-eastern city, a permit was recently issued for the erection of a wood-working factory In the heart of a residential section. Although the residents formally pro- tested against such construction, urg- ing that the area was purely resi- dential and that insurance rates on adjoining property would be consider- ably enhanced, the permit was not revoked. All building laws In cities should contain provisions to protect resi- dential areas and for the securing of neighborhood assent to the erection and operation of business properties which were considered undesirable by those resident In the locality. Under the amended bylaw in Regina It Is proposed to provide lor such conditions by requiring the signatures of a substantial proportion of the .property owners in any block, in which It !s proposed to operate busl cess premises, before permission wll be br tho city.
