Moving cash for radio staff

The BBC is defending plans to offer staff moving to Salford Quays up to £8,000 relocation costs. Various departments, including Radio 5 Live will make the move north in 2011 and the BBC may even buy houses for some employees.

The Daily Mail reports up to 1500 homes may be bought through a third party, and face the liability for losses if the properties were eventually sold on for less.

The corporation would also help find new jobs for partners of staff, and schools for their children, as well as pay for a similar sum for stamp duty, legal fees and surveys, the paper said.

The BBC says the relocation programme has been designed to reduce stress delays and problems.

Meanwhile, plans have been revealed for the Studio Block at mediacity:uk. Details of which can be found [link=]here[/link].
