YourThurrock understands that former Leader of Thurrock Council, Corringham and Fobbing Cllr Ann Cheale is the author of a motion of no confidence in present leader Garry Hague.
Sources close to Cllr Cheale have told YourThurrock that the veteran tory is unhappy with the influence of interim chief executive Bob Coomber and other senior officers. In particular the decision to bring in a barrister to “direct” the planning committee to overturn a decision.
YourThurrock has made several attempts to contact Cllr Cheale but she has not made herself available for interview.
The item, unless withdrawn, will be on the Thurrock Council website on wednesday morning.
The next full council meeting is on wednesday february 24th.
