IT IS clear that there are many people upset at the circumstances surrounding the decision by councillor Joy Redsell to step down from the planning committee at Thurrock Council.
There remain a number of unanswered questions. One such question is: How many other planning applications were discussed in this manner? If there were others, then will they need to come back to some form of appeal?
After last nights council meeting, YT spoke to Conservative leader, Phil Anderson about cllr Redsell’s decision. Cllr Anderson used the term “political troublemaking” several times.
In his speech in the chamber he made reference to “ethical governance” in the council. It will be interesting to see how that pans out in the coming months.
