SALFORD COMMUNITY PUBLIC MEETING OPPOSING HOUSING IN BUILE HILL PARK
 

Star date: 10th June 2018

COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVES TO PARK HOUSES...

Buile Hill Park Public Meeting
Tuesday 12th June 7:30pm
Height Methodist Community Church

A public meeting is being held this Tuesday at the Methodist Church in Irlams o' th' Height to air opposition to Salford Council's proposal for houses to be built in Buile Hill Park as part of a restoration deal for the grade 2 listed Mansion.

Full details here...


After a stormy Claremont and Weaste Community Committee recently, when Salford Council officers didn't satisfy residents' concerns over the possibility of houses being built in Buile Hill Park, a further public meeting is taking place this Tuesday 12th June at the Height Methodist Church at 7:30pm.

It follows a proposal from Salford City Council for Salford Red Devils Foundation and developer Capital and Centric to get together via a Memorandum of Understanding to fund restoration of the empty Grade 2 listed Mansion in Buile Hill Park via some development of the depot area, which could involve building houses (for a full background see previous Salford Star article click here).

So far, over 2,700 people have signed a petition to 'Stop Salford Council building houses in Buile Hill Park, before it is too late'*...

"This will be a good opportunity to put forward your ideas for community uses for the Mansion and outbuildings" says former councillor Mary Ferrer, who is hosting the meeting.

"It's to get a plan of action up and running, also ideas for what we would like to see within the Mansion, plus the main problem; funding" she explains "So Salford folk, it's now up to us to stop this total madness happening. But we also need to hopefully work with the Council so we all win..."

At the meeting there will be paper copies of the petition and an agenda that includes looking at whether the Council has a policy on people living in parks, an open forum for people to air their views and the formation of a working group to take forward any plans decided.

Buile Hill Park Public Meeting
Tuesday 12th June 7:30pm
Height Methodist Community Church
King Street, M6 7GY

SALFORD RESIDENTS LAUNCH NEW SANTA PROTEST IN RESPONSE TO BELLWAY HOMES LEGAL THREATS TO STOP PROTESTS

AS BELLWAY THREATENS INJUNCTIONS AND FINES, SWINTON RESIDENTS RESPOND WITH SANTA PROTEST

"Saturday is the day for reminding Bellway that we have every right to peaceful assembly on a public footpath..."

Two weeks ago, Bellway Homes' solicitors wrote to the Saving Our Neighbourhood campaign - which is objecting to the company's mad construction of 241 houses off Campbell Road in Swinton - threatening injunctions and fines unless it wrote an 'undertaking' not to "interfere and/or attempt to interfere with Bellway's legitimate commercial interests".

In response, tomorrow at noon, residents will hold a special Santa protest at the site entrance..."It's vital that our community makes it clear that a threat from a multi-billion pound developer...will not scare us into signing away our democratic legal rights" states the group.

GRADE 2 LISTED LOWER BROUGHTON CHURCH SEES TWO YEAR RESTORATION

A 5million two year restoration project was launched today for the Grade 2 listed Church of the Ascension which was badly damaged in a huge blaze back in February last year.

"It's the only old building left in Lower Broughton, so we think it's very important that we don't take people's memories away" Canon David Wyatt told the Salford Star a month after the fire. Now the church is set to rise from ashes.
