"...After prolonged negotiations in March of this year the property was eventually purchased by the Corporation at the sum of £575. In September of this year the Corporation intimated to the late owner's agent, through Mr. H P Nye the Estates' Manager, that they had no immediate use for this site, and would be prepared to resell it, and as a result of negotiations the property was offered to the previous owner (from whom in March the Corporation had compulsorily acquired it for £575) for the sum of £1100."
