A PLANNING application for a gypsy traveller site in Corringham has been thrown out by Thurrock Council.
The application came in two parts. The main part was for a temporary change of use for a five year period that would see more mobile homes on the site.
The councillors that spoke at the meeting were keen to stress that the application was being viewed on its own merits. They may have stressed this point after a police investigation was undertaken following comments made by Corringham and Fobbing councillor, Mark Coxshall.
Below is a nineteen minute recording of the item where all parties laid out their reasons for promotion or rejection of the application.
