Time running out to have say on key projects
7:10am Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
RESIDENTS across Thurrock are being urged to have their say on a whole host of development proposals which could have a big impact on their lives.
A consultation began running in January which asked for views on a variety of plans which could be developed in the borough over the next ten years and the policies that could affect any developments going ahead.
Among sites which have been proposed for development over the next decade are the Pegasus club site, a number of primary schools, East Thurrock United Football Club’s Rookery Hill ground, Grays and Purfleet town centres and the hospice and homes plans for Horndon-on-the-Hill.
The strategy documents are currently online to view and have a say on.
Little Thurrock Conservative councillor Rob Gledhill said: “It’s important people reply to tell us what they do like, as well as what that they don’t.
“The plans include new and expanded schools for our growing communities, as well as upgrades to the rail network and improvements for Grays.
“I’m sure lots of people will support these ideas, and this consultation is an opportunity to show that.”
The core strategy and site specific policy consultations can be found on Thurrock Council’s website at www.thurrock.gov.uk/planning/ strategic/
But time is running out to let your voice be known – the consultations close on March 1.
