SALFORD TERRACES DEMOLISHED
 

Star date: 2nd February 2010  

WHY ARE THESE HOUSES BEING DEMOLISHED?

The demolition of riverside terraced houses continues as part of the Charlestown and Lower Kersal New Deal for Communities (NDC), with Wainman Street currently being reduced to rubble like something out of the Blitz.

But why are these houses being demolished as `unfit', while others a few streets away have been refurbished? We think we've found the answer…

The demolition of 184 terraced houses in Thursfield Street, Reading Street, Chinley Street, Wainman Street, Suffolk Street, Levens Street and part of Littleton Road continues, with Wainman Street currently being bulldozed.

Last October, when demolition first started, we reported in the Sold Down The River feature the community's consistent belief that the only reason these houses were being flattened was because developers get bigger profits from riverside properties. Other identical houses set back from the river have been refurbished.

A Salford Council Report from 2006 about another waterside area perhaps provides the proof that families are being kicked out of their homes and perfectly good houses are being trashed to please developers and speculators.

The Report from the directors for Development and Corporate Services states… "an active water frontage is generally regarded as giving a 20 – 25% uplift in values, making development far more attractive / viable…"

The Salford Star would like to ask Salford Council and the NDC (Now Demolishing a City) for whose benefit this `regeneration' is being carried out?

Read this too, look at these photos, put your hands on your heart and answer truthfully…

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.

Now his uncle wants to know why his nephew's death was not reported and says "This is probably going on in every big city in the country, and for me it is just being covered up..."

The planning panel of councillors for Salford City Council will be probably rubber stamping yet another huge development in Ordsall this week – two blocks of 'luxury' apartments, up to nine storeys high, off Ordsall Lane and Dyer Street.

From 196 properties being proposed by Selectric Investments Ltd, just one will be affordable, thanks to official Salford Council policy.
