GRAYS councillors are set to ask questions at the next Thurrock Council meeting regarding to the Council’s proposal to build 82 flats opposite Seabrooke Rise on the Civic Offices site and 50 flats on the Darnley Road and Crown Road car park, making 132 properties in what has been described as an already overcrowded area of our Ward of Grays Riverside.
On Wednesday night, Cllr Kerin will ask this question of Cllr Johnson at Full Council:
‘What is the Portfolio Holder’s view on the potential to build 82 flats opposite Seabrooke Rise on the current Civic Offices site, and 50 flats on the Darnley Road/Crown Road car park?’
All three Grays Riverside councillors have issued a joint statement.
Cllrs Kerin, Pothecary and Fish said: “These proposals are typical of a Tory council that increasingly tries to ride roughshod over the views of the residents who live in our Ward.
There are already major issues with congestion and parking in this part of Grays, and this is compounded by the lack of infrastructure attached to these proposals.
These proposals would have a detrimental effect on the Seabrooke Rise estate and the Clarence Road area of Grays. We will be fighting them.’
