Star date: 19th August 2012

SALFORD MAYOR TO IMPLEMENT TORY CUTS FOR ALMOST 20,000 PEOPLE…

On Monday, Salford Mayor Ian Stewart is expected to agree a consultation on policy that would effectively pass on ConDem Government cuts for Council Tax benefits to some of the poorest people in Salford.

The Council report which will be seen by the Mayor states that "the funding cuts will have a substantial impact on working age claimants". Will the Mayor pass on the Government cuts? He doesn't need to – the Salford Star has the alternative!

SALFORD CHARLESTOWN SPENDING REVEALED

Star date: 19th August 2012

OVER 70% OF BUDGET FOR NDC LEGACY COMMUNITY GROUP SPENT ON CONSULTANTS, MARKETING, ONE PART TIME WORKER AND A CHAIR

After almost ten weeks Salford Council has finally, sort of, replied to the Salford Star Freedom of Information request surrounding the finances of the Charlestown and Lower Kersal Development Framework Group – the `community led' organisation set up to guard the legacy of the ten year £53million NDC atrocity.

It's not pretty reading… Nearly £43,000 from a budget of £60,000, or over 70%, was spent on staff, consultants and marketing - while only  £15,155 was spent on grants for community projects.

Salford Council is to try yet another £3million `new approach' to Whit Lane and Charlestown - after ten years of £53million NDC funding, a zillion masterplans and six months after a vision for the area which might never see the light of day.

Properties bought for demolition and currently tinned up in the community-dubbed `Forgotten Estate' will now be offered back for sale to the original owners, in their "current condition", which we're sure they will be thrilled about…
