Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet – and that the £1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with £1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over £20million.
