THURROCK Council has released the results of a residents survey.
The Conservative-run administration has said on several occasions that “sunlight is the best disinfectant”
And so true to their word they surveyed over a thousand residents in order to ask them how they are doing.
The results clearly show (based on questions asked) that “the issues of most importance are potholes, waste and recycling.
The most common neighbourhood issue is “rubbish or litter lying around”.
