RESIDENTS in the Grove Road area of Grays are continuing to fight the council over plans to build upon vital car-parking space in the borough.
Led by Chairman of the Orchards Community Forum, Mike Stone, over 400 residents have signed the petition. The council have plans to introduce the first council housing in the borough in a scheme called Project Enterprise but the residents believe that there is simply no space.
Mr Stone spoke to the Health and Well-Being Overview and Scrutiny Committee last night (tuesday).
The council had informed the meeting that all four car parking areas were only busy at the weekends.
Mr Stone pointed out that they were busy all the time.
YourThurrock interviewed Mr Stone and fellow residents in Grove Road. If you look carefully (1.09) you can see a council officer go to her car in the packed car park!
