Connecting Salford deadline extended

This is an archived news story from December 2012

The deadline to share your vision for the future of Salford has been extended.

Salford residents have the chance to put their ideas on how to improve life in the city through the Connecting Salford consultation, which began in October, until 1 January.

With responses, suggestions and ideas coming in to the council, residents now have more time to reach the City Mayor to let him know your views for the City Plan.

The results of Connecting Salford will be collated in the weeks following the deadline, and the most effective proposals to improve the city will then go forward.

The Connecting Salford document has already been distributed to every house, business and community organisation in the city. It contains a form for residents to air their thoughts, giving everyone the chance to put their points to the City Mayor. Residents can also give their views by completing the online consultation form.

Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart said: "I want to make sure that every resident, business and community organisation has had every chance to declare their vision for the future of Salford.

"That is why I have decided to extend the deadline for feedback on the Connecting Salford consultation.

"Connecting Salford is the starting point in the development of a vision for Salford, where we can all be proud to live, learn, work and play in a modern, creative, connected and co-operative city.

"Now is the time for residents and families to propose imaginative, groundbreaking and effective ideas to prepare Salford for the coming economic upturn. So tell us what you think on the form, in the libraries and online."
