Hanky Park, Then And Now: A Lesson In Regeneration?
A talk by Tom Murphy
Wed 11th May 2pm free
Working Class Movement Library

Hanky Park was Salford all over. Then it was condemned to make way for the brave new world of Salford Precinct and the tower blocks.  A `lesson in regeneration' or a disaster?

This first talk in the new Invisible Histories series at the Working Class Movement Library will aim to provide some answers.

Full story here…

Before Hanky Park was a rock band, the area that it was named after was everything that stereotyped Salford in the mind of the southern beholder. It was Lowry plus Love On The Dole plus Dirty Old Town

…And then it was deleted…swept away by the futuristic regeneration that became Salford Precinct and the tower blocks. A `lesson in regeneration' or a disaster?

Hopefully this first talk by Tom Murphy in the new Invisible Histories series at the Working Class Movement Library will dissect what went wrong and draw some parallels with today's mess created by the `municipal authority' ie Salford Council.

If you've got a few hours to spare on Wednesday afternoon it will be well worth a listen.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

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.

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.
