Councillor defends record on fly-tipping (but doesn’t mention proposal to part-close Linford tip)

A SENIOR Thurrock councillor has defended the council’s record on fly-tipping.

Portfolio holder, cllr Phil Smith was responding to a question from Orsett councillor, Sue Little at a recent council meeting.

In a somewhat underwhelming performance, cllr Smith could not tell the chamber how many people had actually been prosecuted, which some may find surprising as he is paid £15,000 allowance on top of his daytime job.

Later this week, Thurrock Council will discuss a proposal to reduce the Linford tip from seven days a week to four days a week.
