Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I, Councillor Kelly, Lead Member for Housing and Neighbourhoods, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby:


Approve the payment of the rental income of 167 and 191 Langworthy Road to the Seedley and Langworthy Trust for use in community projects, subject to the implementation of the project approval and governance arrangements.


The reasons are that there is a longstanding arrangement for the payment of income from Langworthy Road shops brought back into use by the NWDA during the Seedley Regeneration investment to the Seedley and Langworthy Trust (SALT).   The approval seeks to clarify these arrangements and makes recommendations for strengthening governance arrangements for the approval of expenditure on a value for money basis.


Options considered and rejected were: Discontinuing the payment of rents to SALT.


Assessment of Risk: Medium


The source of funding is the Housing Revenue Account


Legal Advice obtained: Tony Hatton (Manchester Legal)


Financial Advice obtained: Michelle Cowley, Finance Manager


Procurement Advice obtained: N/A
