Council Talk Tough on Travellers

Thurrock’s ruling Tory Cabinet spelt out in no uncertain terms how they felt about the imposition of further Traveller pitches in Thurrock.

The Cabinet recommended that they continue to explore whether mounting a legal challenge is a possibility.

If the government plans go through then there could be a total of 167 pitches in the borough with a total population of over 3,000.

Little Thurrock Robert Gledhill said: “We have been ignored by this government and we must rally the public so that our voices are heard.”

“This is one government department endorsing another while trampling over the people of Thurrock.”

Any legal challenge must be made to the High Court six weeks from the 20th July.
