GRAYS Labour councillors have pledged to speak out against a planning application in relation to a development in Helleborine.
Thurrock Council officers are recommending approval for the eight home development on on land adjacent to Curling Lane, Helleborine and Meesons Lane in Grays.
Cllr Tony Fish said: “Myself, Cllr Kerin and Cllr Pothecary support our residents. They know that this application is terrible for the residents of Badgers Dene and Meesons Lane.
The design would blight the area, and pile pressure on already stretched infrastructure and services.
We urge the Planning Committee to chuck this scheme out.”
