MARY BURNS AWARDS
DAY 4

THE `Of Course We're Not Trying To Clear The Community Out Of Central Salford That's Next To Manchester, The River, The University and the BBC Media City Site'  AWARD

Yes, almost 1500 family houses are to be bulldozed in Salford over the next four years, to add to the 220 that will have been trashed during 2009-10…and the 2500 homes that have been demolished before that in Central Salford.

And, of course, these homes are to be replaced with even more towerblocks, or `apartments' as they're now known.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Yes, Salford Council wins this MARY for a second time...

Demolition targets for the next four years include flattening the High Street Estate and Athole Street area in Pendleton (777 houses), Whit Lane in Charlestown (177 houses), Humphrey Booth Gardens off Eccles Old Road (202 houses) and Broughton, of course (another 280 houses)…

Meanwhile in Central Salford, up until 2015, for every new house that's built, there's going to be 4.5 new flats (net figures).

In the ward of Ordsall, which includes MediaCityUK and all that, 378 new houses are going up, compared to 4493 flats. And in the ward of Irwell Riverside, which includes areas around the University, a mere 147 family homes are scheduled to be built, while 1221 flats are going up.

Ladies and Gentlemen. There can be only one winner of the `Of Course We're Not Trying To Clear The Community Out Of Central Salford That's Next To Manchester, The River, The University and the BBC Media City Site'  Award…Yes it's…

SALFORD C-I-I-I-I-TY COUNC-I-I-I-I-L
