SALFORD COUNCIL ISSUES COURT SUMMONS FOR DEMOLISHED HOUSE

Salford Council has issued a court summons for non payment of Council Tax on a house it actually bought and demolished earlier this year, after forcing the occupant out with a Compulsory Purchase Order.

The former occupant now has until his Magistrates Court hearing on December 6th to pay over £750.

It's bad enough when the Council comes calling with a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) to force you out of your house because it wants to demolish it to make way for new unaffordable housing.

It's even worse when, once they've forced you out of that house and demolished it, they issue a Court Summons for non payment of Council Tax for a home that's now just a pile of rubble.

Guy Griffiths reluctantly left his home on Leicester Road before the end of March this year, after a CPO and later an eviction order from the Sheriff himself (click here).

The house was instantly tinned up and later demolished. The site is now a pile of rubble and mud, being prepared for Countryside Properties so-called `Kings Square' development of three, four and six bedroom houses…largely unaffordable for any of the four hundred or so Salfordians who used to live in the Top and Bottom Streets of Higher Broughton and also had their homes demolished (click here and click here).

Now Guy is livid that he's received a summons from Salford City Council to appear at Manchester Magistrate Court on December 6th for non-payment of Council Tax for a house that he no longer owns, hasn't lived in for eight months, and is, in fact, demolished…

"Nothing surprises me at the incompetence of Salford Council" he says "If I have to go to court maybe I'll ask them to pay a visit to the `property'. I'm not very happy at the situation."

The summons states that if the full amount of £761.64 isn't paid by the date of the hearing, "an application will be made for a Liability Order to be issued against you with costs of £80". The summons also states that Guy shouldn't go to court unless he has a "valid legal defence"…

…Perhaps he should take a pile of bricks and some mud. Except that he doesn't even own them any more…

Angry, you would be right, took a look and surprise surprise it's Palmers doing the job. The spent over 3 months demolishing Seedley road school, and most of that time was spent moving piles of rubble from a to b and back again. They are currently slowly knocking down some houses in lower broughton, and going of the piles outside the houses they'll make a pretty penny at they scrapyard.

...and the council always check if the householder is in arrears prior to issuing homeloss or relocation payments. Outstanding council tax is deducted by SCC before the payments are released. A family member who homeswapped had council tax(which they didnt owe) deducted in this way-only to have it refunded back a month later when they raised a complaint.

What year is the council tax bill for? It could be for a previous year that he lived there. If that's the case, pay up!

If true this would put Salford, sorry, Tesco City Council in the invidious position of taking themselves to court. Let's face it, they're stupid enough to do it then send bailiffs into themsclves. After all it's only public money. They must think they've not bled us totally dry yet

I presume they have sent the usual demands for payment (the ones that say DO NOT REDIRECT on the envelope) before sending this summons, so the question is WHY did nobody at the council realise the house no longer existed or aleast THINK "thats odd" when the clowncil tax demands were returned as undeliverable by postman pat.

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
