SALFORD COUNCIL DODGES ITS OWN PLANNING RULES

Star date: 30th March 2012

SAFORD COUNCIL PARTNERSHIP WITH COUNTRYSIDE PROPERTIES IS `UNVIABLE’ FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Salford Council’s own Planning Panel was the judge and jury that decided there was no need for affordable housing when presiding over an application for a partnership that included Salford Council.

Salford Council’s own policy states that in a scheme of the size proposed, 20% of housing should be affordable. But this was waived, as were other payments, because the project would be `unviable’

You have to ask yourself one thing how much affordable housing as been provided over the years? the answer very little,why bother when you just say the scheme is  unviable. SECTION 106 ASK YOURSELF ASAA WILL PRIVOIDE? NOT MUCH IF ANY.

Labour kicked out in Bradford west,lets hope this is just the start.

George Galloway, the leading figure in Respect, has grabbed a remarkable victory in the Bradford West byelection, claiming that “By the grace of God, we have won the most sensational victory in British political history”.

It appeared that the seat’s Muslim immigrant community had decamped from Labour en masse to Galloway’s fundamentalist call for an immediate British troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and a fightback against the job crisis.

On a turnout of 50.78%, Labour’s shellshocked candidate Imran Hussein was crushed by a 36.59% swing from Labour to Respect that saw Galloway take the seat with a majority of 10,140.

Labour had held the seat in 2010 with a majority of 5,763. It marks an extraordinary personal and political comeback for the controversial politician who lost in the UK general election in 2010, and in the Scottish parliament in 2011, appearing to confirm that the remainder of his career would lie in broadcasting and celebrity programmes.

It is also a bitter blow to Ed Miliband, who failed to capitalise on the suddenly plummeting support for the coalition, and did not see the threat posed by Galloway until too late
