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 CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST 10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT 5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost 10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the 4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent 5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending 9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, 118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over 14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, 25,000 on milk and bread?

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON 4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the 4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
