OBSCENE £650 A DAY PAYMENT TO MEDIA CITY `DEPRIVED AREAS’ CONSULTANT
A consultant brought in to help some of Salford’s most `deprived’ people get jobs at MediaCityUK is being paid £650 per day – and a total of £46,800 for just 12 days work a month on a six month contract.
Salford City Council, which is currently cutting funding to community groups, is making the obscene payment to former Salford URC Director of Community Regeneration, Chris Marsh, via a contract which has not gone out to tender.
