SALFORD CITY FC VICTORY FOR INDEPENDENT COUNCILLOR CANDIDATE
 

Star date: 14th February 2017

KERSAL BY-ELECTION CANDIDATE SCORES BEFORE ELECTION

After residents' protests over the redevelopment of Salford City FC's stadium on Moor Lane, the community decided to stand its own candidate in the forthcoming Kersal by-election on 2nd March (see here and see here).

Now, the Independent 'Residents' Voice' candidate, Jonny Wineberg, has scored a victory before the poll has even begun, liaising with Salford City FC and Greater Manchester Police to secure temporary parking restrictions on the roads around the stadium.

"Safety has been a major concern for local residents on match days" says Jonny "Parking issues have meant road blockages with buses and even emergency vehicles being unable to get through. I am hugely delighted to see a solution put in place that will alleviate these problems for local residents."

Under the proposal from Urban Vision, fans will no longer be able to park in the immediate vicinity of the stadium as cones and policing will be in place on Moor Lane and Nevile Road. Salford City will pay for the implementation of the scheme.

"I am delighted that this has been moved forward and thank the football club, GMP and Jonny for their help in assuring the safety of our residents on match days" says Kersal Moor Residents' Association chair, David Mintz.

With restrictions in place on just two roads however, residents are still concerned that it will just push the traffic problems onto other nearby streets, which was one of the objections to the original traffic plan proposed by the club.


The full list of candidates is...

Christopher Barnes UKIP
Mike Pevitt Labour Party
Jason Reading Green Party
Arnie Saunders Conservative Party
Adam Slack Liberal Democrats
Jonny Wineberg Independent

Voting takes place Thursday 2nd March 7am-10pm

Amazing, isn't it, that it takes the threatened loss of a Labour seat for Labour Salford Council to listen to local residents who put up a local independent candidate. Salford Labours actions are tantamount to political cynicism to shore up their candidate in the by election and take the wind out of Mr Wineberg's campaign.

Oh Great so that means Vine Street is going to get all the cars now, why would Vine street not be included in these plans?

SALFORD COUNCILLORS COULD BE CUT IN BOUNDARY COMMISSION REVIEW

Star date: 20th April 2018

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

Salford currently has three councillors per ward but, with new wards possibly emerging as the city grows, this might be cut to two per ward.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
