Hundreds of Thurrock homes “still” not fit for use
Date posted: 25-10-2012
THE DECLINE IN the number of “decent homes” in the borough has been probed by the Thurrock Conservatives.
In a question submitted by Mr Aaron Mohammed to the leader of the council, he asked how many had not met the standard.
Cllr Kent informed him that 98% met the standard, which meant that there were 209 which were “non-decent”.
Mr Mohammed, a former Labour candidate for council, asked cllr Kent why there had been a decline under Labour as the percentage stood at 99.8% under a Tory administration.
Cllr Kent replied that as opposed to working to a national standard, they were working to a “Thurrock” standard.
