COMMITTEE CHAIR VOWS: THERE WILL BE NO REWRITING OF HISTORY

THURROCK Labour’s Martin Kerin, who chairs the Planning, Transport, Regeneration Overview & Scrutiny Committee has vowed not to let Tory-run Thurrock Council rewrite history over the failed Stanford-le-Hope Railway Station Project.

He said: “I demanded that this item be brought back to my committee as I have grave concerns about the current Tory administration’s ability to deliver the much needed infrastructure improvements that Thurrock needs.

“What the residents of Thurrock want is a full and frank appraisal of what went so drastically wrong last time – the current administration clearly lost control of the original project. Moving forward, Thurrock taxpayers need total assurances that Tory-led Thurrock Council will get it right second time around – there is no third time lucky with this scheme.

“Therefore, when I chair the committee on Monday 6 July, I will, of course, be fully focused on the future of this much-delayed but much-needed project. Equally, I will certainly not allow a rewriting of the past.”
