SALFORD FLOOD COMMUNITY MEETING CALLED FOR LOWER BROUGHTON
 

Star date: 15th September 2016 

ENVIRONMENT AGENCY, URBAN VISION AND COUNCILLORS TO FACE FLOOD HIT LOWER BROUGHTON COMMUNITY 

The East Salford Community Committee meeting for next Thursday 22nd September has been moved to River View Primary School to centre on a discussion on the Boxing Day Flood in Lower Broughton.

One national and one Greater Manchester report on the flood have already been released and a further report from Salford City Council has been released to certain people, although the community itself hasn't seen it yet.

Full details here...


After two almost useless reports from the Government and Greater Manchester this week into the Boxing Day Flood*, a third one from Salford Council has been issued to certain people, although the Lower Broughton community itself has yet to set eyes on it.

Next Thursday 22nd September, from 6:30pm, the community will have a chance to discuss the contents of the Greater Manchester Flood Investigation Report and the Salford Council report, which hopefully will have been released properly by then.

The scheduled East Salford Community Committee meeting on that date has moved its venue to River View Primary School and its agenda to centre on the issue. David Hunter and Matt Ryan from Urban Vision will be attending, as will someone from Environment Agency together with local councillors.

At the last stormy East Salford Community Committee meeting at River View back in January attended by around 150 people, the then Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, was given a hard time by the flood hit community as he promised to "find out exactly what happened on the day", to review "all the failures" and to "learn from mistakes"... (see previous Salford Star article – click here)

...Of course Ian Stewart is now well gone. And the community will be hoping that Salford City Council keeps good on its promise. Although being able to actually read the report before the meeting might be a good start!


East Salford Community Committee Meeting
River View School M7 1QZ
Thursday 22nd September 6:30pm – all welcome

Will be finding out who is going to be attending this long over due meeting and let's hope they have better plans this time as they clearly never had any plans for this happening in the first place ! Just a good job there was no lives lost because this so could of easily been the case. I hope a member of salix will be attending and the mayor, AE need to prove that they have things lined up instead of just saying the flood field no2 (kersal ) will be in operation ? The public should be aware off this meeting taking place as this is the first time I've seen anything.
