THE THURROCK Conservatives believe that the issue matters to the voters of Thurrock and they say that it contributed to their improved performance in the Stifford Clays by-election back in November, 2013.
And so, in the last council meeting of the civic year, next Wednesday (March 26th), in what has effectively been a two year cycle, the leader of the Conservative group in Thurrock, cllr Phil Anderson has proposed as motion that aims to ensure that the relationship between Thurrock Council and Barking and Dagenham Council goes no further.
The motion states:
“This council affirms its decision of 28th November 2012 not to pursue Joint Management between Thurrock Council and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, and commits not to make any further shared management arrangements between the two authorities.”
Needless to say, council boss John Kent will point out the growing number of council’s that Thurrock share services with however, he has not convinced the Tories, who feel that they have, a definite line of inquiry.
