Chief executive of Thurrock Council, Graham Farrant maps out the year ahead for Thurrock

graham14THE COMING year may be the most challenging that Thurrock Council has ever faced. Budgetary cuts and efficiency savings mean the the council coffers have declined from over £170 million just a few years ago to close to £85 million.

This was the first question we put to Mr Farrant in an interview that is just under twenty minutes long.

We covered a number of subjects including: The Barking and Dagenham merger; the criticism of Thurrock Council by Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price; the challenges of working with a minority administration; the biggest issues such as adult social care and much much more.

We did finish off with looking at the positive aspects to life in the borough.
