Salford city council is planning to sell off its main shopping centre to raise cash for housing repairs, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The Shopping City complex, which was built in 1972, provides the council with around £750,000 a year in rent and is valued at nearly £9m.

Salford are seeking both Single Regeneration Budget and City Pride money, and they believe the shopping centre cash would go towards fulfilling government demands for local authorities to contribute.

However, the Labour administration is divided over the issue and will wait for a more detailed report before making a decision next month, the paper reports.
