SALFORD QUAYS BLUE CRANES TO BE DE-LISTED PAVING WAY FOR DEMOLITION
`What none of the Council reports on the cranes state is that there is £734,000 funding put aside and ring fenced to sort the cranes out…'
Tomorrow, 20th March, a Salford Council report to the Lead Member for Planning, Councillor Derek Antrobus, will recommend a new Local List of Heritage Assets for Salford which will exclude the formally listed blue cranes at Salford Quays.
