Squibb planning appeal set to be heard

A PLANNING appeal in relation to an application made by a Stanford-le-Hope demolition company Squibb will be heard on Wednesday.

The inquiry, which could last two days is at the Civic Offices, New Road, Grays.

The firm have angered residents by operating from an industrial site just outside the town centre on Wharf Road – with large vehicles, including low loaders carrying huge demolition equipment, thundering through residential areas.

Last year the Council’s planning committee ruled the site was operating illegally and issued an enforcement order on the site, insisting that it could only operate within daytime hours.

The matter returned to the planning committee in January, when the residents won a victory regarding time the company could operate.
