PLANS for a new outdoor market in Corringham town centre have been thrown out.

Thurrock Council’s planning committee voted to reject the application at its meeting last night.

The plans for the 30 stall market proved unpopular with established businesses in the town, and more than 1,300 people signed a petition against it.

The planning committee’s Phil Anderson, who is the Conservative ward member for Corringham Town, gave a speech questioning whether the market would benefit the town and concluded it wouldn’t.
