7:00am Monday 8th October 2012 in News
THURROCK Council’s new housing committee will examine a proposal to close two of the borough’s housing offices on Wednesday, October 10.
News of the potential closures, affecting Purfleet and Corringham, was first reported in August.
Chairman of the new housing scrutiny committee, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said: “Conservatives were very clear in our manifesto at the local elections this year that we wanted to protect vital housing office services.
“We will look at ways of securing the long-term future of the offices when the committee meets.”
