IT SEEMED quite a sad but timely image. The deserted and rusting building site wasting away.
The site in question is the one on Howard Lane, behind Bannatynes Gym in Chafford Hundred.
The plan was for 153 homes called Thames Square.
It was quite a contentious issue, four years ago as local councillors like Tunde Ojetola expressed their concern that once again homes were being built in Chafford without the accompanied infrastructure.
But it was recently announced in the London Gazette that the builders Thames and County Construction Ltd, formerly Stephen Howard Homes have gone into liquidation.
We understand that the Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation (DC) are looking for a buyer.
