SALFORD COUNCIL HOUSING MESS AS RENTS SET TO INCREASE £20 A WEEK, DECENT HOMES FUNDING IN TATTERS AND SALIX HOMES SET FOR SELL OFF
Salford’s social housing is set for its biggest ever crisis with rents to increase by an average of £20 a week by 2015, funding to bring homes up to a decent standard running dry and the Pendleton PFI draining the Council of resources. Salford Council’s answer? An option to `transfer’ or hive off its entire Salix Homes housing stock.
It’s a monumental mess created by both Salford City Council and ConDem Coalition Government…
I wonder will Mr Merry and the New Swinton South Cllr AKA HEAD OF HOUSING Gina Merrit care to comment?
