THE THURROCK Conservative group have expressed their concerns that plans to “share” the council’s chief executive Graham Farrant with Barking and Dagenham will impact on the borough’s improvement programme.
The cabinet meeting (Wednesday) at the council offices had begun with council leader, John Kent backing the scheme.
Conservative councillor, Tunde Ojetola asked the leader: “We have already seen the departure of officers Bill Newman, Tasnim Shawcatt and Richard Waterhouse.
“Could you detail what impact this further change will have on the transformation agenda?”
Council leader, John Kent replied: “Martin Whiteley has been added to the team which will continue to build on the good work already completed.
