Star date: 24th November 2011

SHELAGH DELANEY RECOGNITION REQUEST

Independent councillor, Martin O'Neill, is asking for the community's suggestions for ways in which to honour Broughton playwright Shelagh Delaney who died this week.

The Swinton South councillor hopes that Salford Council will "assist in recognising her life and works".

Further details here…


Following the death this week of Shelagh Delaney, Swinton South Independent councillor, Martin O'Neill, responding to a call from a local resident, is asking Salford Council to recognise the Broughton playwright's contribution to culture in this country.

O'Neill has written to all of Salford's councillors and top officers, plus MP
Hazel Blears who appeared in the film A Taste of Honey, requesting support for the project.

"I was saddened to hear of the recent death of (Salfordian) Shelagh Delaney, someone whose work I personally enjoyed" he wrote "I have been asked by a local resident to raise the question of whether the council could assist in helping to recognise her life and works. Anything from a plaque to a mention at the next council meeting… Any comments/suggestions welcome."

If anyone does have any ideas please e-mail Councillor O'Neill at councillor.mo'neill@salford.gov.uk

maybe an end of year award for the student who excells in English lit across the city. I also hope the council do speak about this fine Salford lady. Her roots were still in Salford. I would like to say a big thank you to Shelagh for her support when we tried to save a Salford landmark. The Salford Ambassadore.

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.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
