STRANGE SALFORD PRECINCT CAR PARK SALES
 

Star date: 26th October 2012

SALFORD PRECINCT CAR PARK CONFUSION

Strange goings on at Salford Precinct as three car parks are charging for short stay, while one is still free. What's happening? At midday today, Salford Council was due to agree to sell two car parks to the Salford Shopping Centre owners, Salford Estates. But before the decision has been ratified the Precinct has already taken them over and begun charging for short stay. Confusing? You bet!

Full story here…

If you go down to the Precinct today you're sure to get a surprise… three of the four Precinct car parks are charging £1.50 for the first two hours, while the other one, on Hankinson Way, is free for the first half hour, and then charges completely different, cheaper rates to the Precinct after that.

What's going on? Salford Council is today due to agree to sell two of its car parks to Salford Shopping Centre - for how much we've no idea as it's all secret, as per usual.

But, before the deal has been authorised, Salford Shopping Centre has branded the two car parks and increased the charges. It already owns the third car park, where the market used to be.

Meanwhile Salford Council has retained ownership of Hankinson Way and is, for the time being, keeping to its pledge made back in May to provide half an hour free parking "to make life a little easier and encourage people to explore our local town centres".

To make life a little more confusing for people wanting to `explore our local town centres', there's now two completely different rates at the car parks…

Hankinson Way Car Park (near the tower blocks) remains Salford Council owned and provides half an hour's free parking, followed by a charge of £1.50 for between 30 minutes and two and a half hours, and £3.50 all day.

The other car parks at Market Way (site of the old market), Pendleton Way (opp new Tesco) and Rossall Way (across the road from the old Tesco) now charge £1.50 for the first two hours, £2.50 two to four hours, £3 four to six hours, and £5 all day.

Confusing? Not as much as the name of the thing you're visiting – Salford Shopping City in massive red letters on the tower block; Salford Shopping Centre in blue on the branding and, as we all know and kind of love, Salford Precinct to everyone else…

Meanwhile, if you're going down the Precinct in a car, head for Hankinson Way…just think what you can buy in Poundworld with the savings!

If the clowncil will not say how much then it's clearly another case of a bad deal for the tax payer. Maybe they could give us a clue, so if the clowns are reading this pick an option. 1)You recieved nothing, you paid Salford estates, 2) Nothing or how you usually put it "it was in Salford's interests", 3)Between 1p and £1, 4)£1.01-£99.99, 5)£100-1000, 6)£1000.01-£10000, 7)Market rate as determined by an INDEPENDANT evaluater (i hope you didn't use the same firm you used for the houses you bought using those CPO's in Langworthy). Come on Scary and Greedy even you could answer a multiple choice question.

What a shambles (hang on that sounds like a good name for a shopping center). Tesco city as it will soon be known will have 2-3 hrs free parking so let's just say the council will have made a very good deal on the sale............... Unless the site of the sold car parks are going to have future use for building more shops or housing! one never knows with such a cheating council.
