SALFORD COUNCIL FOLLOWS TORY HOUSING POLICY ON STOCK TRANSFER

Star date: 30th October 2014

PUBLIC MONEY PRIVATE GAIN – THE IDEOLOGICAL ATTACK ON SALFORD'S SOCIAL HOUSING

The ballot on whether to transfer the remainder of Salford Council's housing stock ends on Monday November 3rd. If tenants vote `Yes' they will see the culmination of a massive ConDem Government attack on social housing in the city that will in future see more expensive rents, less secure and fixed term tenancies, and a social housing company acting like a private developer.

The vote isn't necessarily about the present rights of tenants, it's about the rights of future generations of Salfordians...

SALFORD COUNCIL HOUSING TRANSFER VOTE NEARS WITH RENT HIKES ON THE AGENDA

Star date: 29th October 2014

`SOCIAL RENT' OR `AFFORDABLE RENT' IF SALIX WINS TRANSFER VOTE?

As tenants are urged to vote `Yes' or `No' to the privatisation of 8,500 Council homes in Salford by next Monday, November 3rd, there's still question marks over the future ethos of Salix Homes, the company that intends to take over the properties.

A clue is given in the Business Plan which will see 120 properties that are currently `social rent' tenancies on the Beechfarm Estate in Swinton replaced by 106 `affordable rent' properties. `Affordable rent' is way more expensive than `social rent'.

DISGUST AS JUDGE REJECTS DISABLED PEOPLE CHALLENGE TO SALFORD COUNCIL TRANSPORT CUTS

Star date: 23rd October 2014

BATTLE TO SAVE TRANSPORT FOR SALFORD DISABLED ADULTS NOT OVER

"I'm absolutely disgusted, we're only a small minority fighting a big council..."

Lawyers representing Michael Robson and Jennifer Barrett, the two disabled adults who challenged Salford City Council with a judicial review over cuts to transport, are considering an appeal after High Court Judge Stephen Davies ruled that the service could be withdrawn.

Accepting the possibility that some of those who have had their transport removed may have "an unsuitable or unsafe transport service", the Judge still found in favour of Salford Council, in a riot of legalese. The general feeling from those who have battled the Council over the cuts was one of `disgust'.

SALIX REMOVING `NO' LEAFLETS...COUNCIL SENDING OUT LETTERS TO TENANTS...NO PUBLIC DEBATE... IS THIS A FAIR BALLOT?

In the run up to this month's ballot where tenants can vote `Yes' or `No' to the transfer of Salford Council houses to Salix Homes, a £1million campaign was launched in an effort to get people to agree to the privatisation. Now the ballot has started, Salix, in its own words, "must not try to persuade tenants to vote in any particular direction".

However, people are angry that Salix has removed `No' campaign literature from its properties, while Salford Council has sent out letters to all tenants `correcting' information put out by those opposed to the privatisation. Is this ballot fair?

Simon Pook, the solicitor who urged the United Nations to investigate `miners strike' style policing at Barton Moss last winter, has slammed today's report by the Police and Crime Commissioner' Independent Panel.

The report on Barton Moss emphasises some incredibly contentious comments on the anti-fracking protesters, while adding that "Claims of police violence have not been substantiated". Pook points out that the Report was submitted to Greater Manchester Police before publication for `final input'... "It therefore does not have the independence and credibility which a public inquiry would have"

`ABSURD'...`UNFAIR'...`UNLAWFUL'...`CAVALIER' SALFORD COUNCIL GETS HAMMERED IN HIGH COURT OVER CUTS TO TRANSPORT FOR DISABLED ADULTS

"The sense of injustice...is exacerbated by being consulted on the wrong questions"

At yesterday's High Court judicial review into cuts to transport for severely disabled adults, Salford Council and its barrister got absolutely hammered over its handling and subsequent defence of its actions.

Even the judge at one point questioned the logic of the Council's barrister who argued that no decision had yet been taken on the closure of the transport unit. Meanwhile the campaigners' QC roasted the Council's `absurd' consultation on the cuts and much more. A decision by the judge is due next week.

SALFORD DEMOCRACY AT THE HEART OF NO VOTE FOR SALIX STOCK TRANSFER

Star date: 15th October 2014

WHY DISABLED CANON HUSSEY COURT TENANT IS VOTING `NO' TO PRIVATISATION OF SALFORD COUNCIL HOMES

TJ is physically and mentally disabled and lives on the incredibly unsuitable 14th floor of Canon Hussey Court on the Islington Estate. He had been battling Salix Homes for years, attempting to get moved to a ground floor property, and got nowhere. Then a Salford City councillor became involved, making the company aware of its equalities duties against discrimination. Almost the next day TJ was offered a ground floor property.

This accountability of Salix to councillors, and ultimately residents, is why TJ is calling for Salix tenants to vote `No' in the current ballot on Salford Council stock transfer.
