Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service has issued either Action Plans or Deficiency Notices to 84 blocks of Salford residential property, after post-Grenfell inspections to 110 blocks. Only 26 blocks were 'Broadly Compliant'.

The information is revealed in response to a Salford Star Freedom of Information request, and blocks that failed include Spectrum, Adelphi Court, City View and even Albion Towers, home of Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, who heads Andy Burnham's Greater Manchester High Rise Task Force.

Over three quarters of 110 Salford high and low rise residential blocks inspected since the Grenfell Tower tragedy have failed to be compliant with fire regulations, according to information provided to the Salford Star by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service under the Freedom of Information Act.

Of the 110 publicly and privately owned blocks inspected, only 26 were ruled 'Broadly Compliant' by the Fire Service, while 75 were handed Action Plans and nine were handed Deficiency or Enforcement Notices.

Those blocks handed Deficiency notices were Adelphi Court on North George Street (Guiness Northern Counties), Albert Mill on Oldfield Road (Sun Bright Properties), Ladywell Point on Pilgrims Way (Zenith Property Management), Lowry 1 student block on Peel Park Quarter (Campus Living Villages), Southway in Eccles (City West), Spectrum on Blackfriars Road (Clearwater Facilities Management) and Tilehurst Court on Kersal Way (Thompsons Associates). City View on Highclere Avenue (Cityview Apartments) also had an Enforcement Notice that pre-dated Grenfell.

Meanwhile the 75 blocks handed Action Plans are too numerous to mention but include Ascot Court and Floral Court on Bury New Road (Salix Homes), Fitzwarren Court on Rosehill Close (Salix Homes), Lexington Court on Broadway (Prospect GB), Madison Court on Brydon Close and Bronte Court on Rosehill Close (both Claremont Property), Millennium Tower on Salford Quays (Hadrian Property), Nine Acre Court in Ordsall (Salix Homes), Number One Pink and The Heart Blue at MediaCItyUK (Peel Media), NV Buildings on Salford Quays (Complete Property), The Bayley on New Bailey Street (Rendell and Rittner), The Edge on Clowes Street (Scanlans Property), The Mill on South Hall Street (Keppie Massie), The Peninsula Building on Kersal Way (Peninsula Building), The Vibe on Broughton Lane (Great Places Housing) and Zenith on Chapel Street (Zenith Property).

The long list of properties handed Action Plans also includes all Salford blocks with cladding issues, like Thorn and Spruce Court et al (Pendleton Together), Canon Hussey Court, Arthur Millwood Court, Magnolia Court and the Blackfriars blocks (Salix Homes), Cremer House, Kemball House, Craunton House et al (City West), and Fresh on Chapel Street (Premier Estates) which is currently at the centre of liability issues.

Albion Towers on Cross Lane (Salix Homes), home of Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, who heads GM Mayor Andy Burnham's Greater Manchester High Rise Task Force, set up in the wake of Grenfell, also failed to comply with fire standards and was handed an Action Plan.

Only 26 of the 110 Salford blocks were 'Broadly Compliant' with fire safety standards and these included eight Fusion blocks on Middlewood Street (Contour Property), Vimto Gardens (Urban Bubble), Quartz Building at The Slate Yard on Stanley Street, Delaney Heights on Cannon Street (Guiness Northern Counties) and Imperial Point on Salford Quays (Emerson Management).

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

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.
