SOMETIMES WE wonder if Aveley councillor, Wendy Herd must feel like King Canute. Year after year, Wendy appears in various parts of her ward attempting to stem the tide of planning applications submitted to the Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation (DC).
Cllr Herd as some satisfaction in that the DC will cease to exist in ten months time but until then she will continue to fight the good fight.
An application to develop the Bluelands Quarry on the Aveley Uplands is being submitted to the DC tomorrow (Monday).
YT spoke to cllr Herd near to the quarry to hear what the concerns of the local residents were.
