Adopt the New Islington Estate

We the undersigned petition the Council to Adopt the New Islington estate and stop the excessive charges levied on leaseholders in the area for a public space.

There is a current cost of living crises and residents in the boundary of the New Islington estate have revived back dated bills for hundreds of pounds. The New Islington estate covers the marina and surrounding areas. Charges are levied against the leaseholders of the flats and houses to upkeep the area.
Manchester City council own the land and tender our the running to plum life who charge residents the cost. The council will not adopt the estate and are happy to allow residents to pay inflated costs whilst still collecting council tax. The estate is privately managed by plum life and residents have no say in the running or cost effectively of the estate.
Prices have risen this year with 50k being spent on a caretakers salary.
What’s more is that residents are now being backdated charges to 2018 as the original pot of money has ran out and the council do not want responsibility for the area yet are happy to be the freeholder.
The estate is classed as private but very much open to the public and residents foot the bill for damage and general use by the public.
Manchester council should adopt the estate and save residents hundreds of pounds in income!
