SAVE SALFORD HERITAGE PUBLIC MEETING
 

Star date: 3rd March 2013

ORDSALL HALL AND SALFORD MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY CUTS

Save Salford's Heritage!
Public Meeting
Wednesday 6th March 6-8pm
Ordsall Royal Legion

As Salford Council attacks the city's heritage with cuts to outreach services and partial closure of Ordsall Hall and Salford Museum and Art Gallery, campaigners have called a Public Meeting this Wednesday at Ordsall Royal Legion and are urging people to sign online petitions.

Full details here…


Despite Salford City Council budgeting over £450,000 for building improvements this year to Ordsall Hall and Salford Museum and Art Gallery next financial year, both iconic heritage venues are to experience cuts that will see partial closure and a loss of community outreach projects.

Salford Museum and Art Gallery is being hit with proposals to shut it on a Monday, close heritage services and axe at least eight posts, while cuts at Ordsall Hall will see the Tudor mansion closed on Fridays with cuts to educational services to school kids.

The management of both venues is now being handled by Salford Community Leisure (SCL). And while the public and workforce will see cuts, two SCL Executive Directors saw their income packages rise by a total of over £18,000 during the last financial year - from £144,778 in 2011, to £162,986 in 2012.

Campaigners argue that the public has not been consulted about any of the cuts and have now called a Save Salford's Heritage Public Meeting for this Wednesday so Salford people can have their say.

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.
