SALFORD CITY FC VICTORY FOR INDEPENDENT COUNCILLOR CANDIDATE
 

Star date: 14th February 2017

KERSAL BY-ELECTION CANDIDATE SCORES BEFORE ELECTION

Jonny Wineberg, the Independent candidate for the Kersal by-election, has scored for local residents to secure temporary parking restrictions around Salford City FC's Moor Lane stadium to alleviate match day traffic problems, with the club paying for the implementation of the scheme...

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 COUNCIL SET TO BORROW 25MILLION TO MAKE TOWER BLOCKS FIRE SAFE

25MILLION FOR NINE PENDLETON BLOCKS AS PUBLIC MEETING CALLED ON FIRE SAFETY

Salford City Council is set to borrow 25million in order to sort its nine Pendleton high rises, after they failed consecutive Government fire safety tests. Who ultimately pays for the work, a Council report states, is "likely to be the subject of dispute", although it believes that Pendleton Together is liable.

Meanwhile a public meeting for residents will take place next Tuesday, 22nd August at Salford Arts Theatre, with speakers from the Justice4Grenfell Campaign, Salford City UNISON and the Fire Brigades Union.

'INACCURACIES' AND 'LIES' IN COUNCIL ATTEMPT TO SHUT THE GRANGE AS STRIKE BALLOT LOOMS

Next week, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, will make a decision on whether or not to shut The Grange, Salford's only residential care home for disabled children.

The Council report recommending the closure has been slated in new counter reports from both the families of children at The Grange and Salford UNISON, which accuses the Council of 'inaccuracies', including over unfilled places... "The so-called lack of demand for The Grange is a lie to justify a cut" it states. The report adds that UNISON members "are willing to consider industrial action in defence of their jobs".
