SECURITY FOR RESIDENTS OF M3

Three residents associations in the M3 areas of Greengate, Blackfriars, Trinity and Islington have been awarded £50,000 from the Government to improve security in houses and flats.

Anyone can just ring up and get free locks, chains and spy holes, plus alarm servicing and special DNA marking kits for property.

"We have one of the highest levels of burglaries in the whole of Salford and we're trying to reduce it with this grant" says Richard Critchley of Bridgewater Residents Association.

Full story here…


Three Salford residents associations - Vertical Villages, Bridgewater Residents Association and TIETARA – have got £50,000 to spend by the end of March on improving security in homes throughout the M3 postcode area.

Any residents who haven't got top standard door chains and locks, spy holes or window locks can now have them fitted free of charge, while the grant also covers free alarm checks and servicing.

"Residents can just ring up and free engineers will come out and improve alarms, locks, window locks and door chains" says Richard Critchley of Bridgewater Residents Association "The idea is just to make the community feel safer and more empowered in the area, and to reduce the level of burglaries.

"It's the highest quality alarms and some of the toughest locks you can get" he adds "So it really is worth it and it's completely free…"

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.
