Problem
Residents of Salford, we urgently need to find a solution to restore the derelict mansion and grounds of Buile Hill Park. Despite the excellent hard work of volunteers and Friends groups there is ongoing anti social behaviour and crime. The mansion house is going to be beyond repair if we don’t intervene fast. There is an opportunity, if we act to support the proposals, to see the whole park and buildings to be opened to the public, once again becoming an credit and an important asset to the whole of the City of Salford.

Solution
We have positive and credible restoration proposals by Salford developer, Capital&Centric, which will create significant investment in the Park, bringing the building back into community use with new cafe and toilet facilities. The proposals will only take place within the areas previously built upon and will not touch any parkland or play areas etc. Under the regeneration proposals, the whole project would remain in the ownership of Salford Council and the residents of Salford. Uses include key worker homes, homes for the elderly and disabled and supporting ancillary uses which could also include regular homes and medical facilities. Crucially none of these will be sold of as private housing, it all stays in the ownership for the people of Salford.

Personal story
Last week, at a large community meeting of the residents of Salford, we all discussed the restoration proposals from Capital&Centric. Buile Hill Park is an incredible and important piece of Salfords history and it belongs to the people of Salford. Previously we’ve had many proposals that didn't seek to involve or engage with Salfords residents, but on this occasion we’ve worked together with Capital and Centric from day one to express our hopes and concerns and to co produce a solution that can actually happen. Buile Hill Park must be restored but it mustn’t be sold off, the investment needed is in the region of £30m and we have an opportunity to secure that investment from someone with the track record and passion to ensure it happens.
