THE TORY-led administration at Thurrock Council announced a massive spending splurge in order to clean up the borough as well as fight anti-social behaviour.
The announcment was made at a Cabinet meeting in the council offices on Wednesday night (January 10th).
The £2.3 million spending spree includes:
£1 million on roads
£500,000 on the Clean it, Cut it campaign.
£380,000 on tranpsort planning.
£250,000 on anti-social behaviour
The key part, claimed Conservative leader of Thurrock Council, cllr Rob Gledhill was that none of it would come from the Thurrock taxpayer.
As you can see from the film below, the Tories spent over twenty minutes detailing and praising their own plans and drawing contrasts with the previous Labour administration.
Cllr Gledhill said: “They had a graph of doom, but we have a graph of boom”.
