SALFORD CITY COUNCIL EXPENDITURE JAN 2011
 

Star date: 9th March 2011

SALFORD COUNCIL HANDS PEEL MEDIA OVER £500,000
…GIVES HUGE GRANT TO CORPORATION WITH MULTI £BILLION TURNOVER… AND WON'T TELL HOW IT'S SPENT OVER £1MILLION!

Salford Council has finally revealed its expenditure over £500 for January 2011 – well maybe not, as it's not saying who it's paid over £1million to, including one company that's pocketing over £200,000.

Full story click here…


Salford City Council's expenditure over £500 for January 2011 has been revealed but over £1million of payments have been kept secret – under the `redacted personal data' umbrella.

While many of the small payments are to residents for disturbance money or whatever which would legitimately come under the `redacted' heading, huge payments of almost £1million to companies (or one company) for `capital expenditure' (Pmnt to Ctrs-Improv) have not been identified. There's seven of these payments totalling £953,000, including amounts of £227,267; £205,484 and £181,047.

Also `redacted' are many payments to consultants, and a Chief Executive grant of £20,430 to whom and for what, we don't know. So much for transparency!

Elsewhere, Peel Mediaowners of MediaCityUK – get paid £808,116 (minus £245,772 for some reason, making £562,343 in total) for `capital expenditure'.

Sodexo, which does `Quality of Daily Life Solutions' and runs Forrest Bank Prison gets a huge grant of £84,301. Sodexo boasts `consolidated revenues of 15.3billion Euros'.

Meanwhie, despite trying to flog off 15 buildings around the city, a new one has been purchased for over half a million quid from Fieldings, the auctioneers.

Other payments include £4,484.91 to The Lowry for `provisions', £8281.24 to the Manchester Evening News/Salford Advertiser for advertising, £2,132 to Nordic Pioneer for graffiti removal training and a grant of £1,654.95 to Kingsland Wine and Spirits in Irlam.

And Swinton Lions get a massive £5875 sponsorship payout from the Council – compared to millions granted to Salford City Reds and its stadium…

Has this information come from an FoI request. If so, how can a company name be considered "personal data". There should be a request or appeal made via FoI. Then if the council still refuse to disclose, make a formal complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office. They have teams of people to deal with censorship, sorry FoI requests !!

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.
