THURROCK MP Jackie Doyle Price rose on the floor of the House of Commons to react to the Queen’s speech.
RESIDENTS in Thurrock are being thanked for their use of waste bring sites and their understanding during disruption caused by Unite the Union extending current strike action until Friday 18 June.
THURROCK Council has been successfully granted with an interim injunction by the High Court to prevent residents living in an unsafe House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), in what is believed to be a UK first. On Friday 7 May, the High Court granted the interim injunction against two residents who had continued living in a […]
THE HIGH Court has ruled that local authorities can no longer issue blanket bans on Gypsies and Travellers stopping on parcels of land, in a landmark case which campaigners have hailed a “victory for equality”. A number of councils have used wide injunctions against “persons unknown” since 2015 to prevent Gypsies and Travellers from stopping […]
Essential workers fighting to defend their pay from Thurrock Council bosses will continue strike action
ESSENTIAL workers fighting to defend their pay from Thurrock Council bosses will continue strike action
THURROCK Council is deeply disappointed that Unite the Union has, once again, chosen to further extend strike action despite the ongoing consultation and ACAS conciliation, and without proposing any solutions to resolve the dispute
ADDITIONAL temporary waste drop-off sites will be created this week to give residents more opportunities to dispose of household waste not collected because of Unite the Union strike action.
IN May 2020, Mr Perrin wrote an article, specifically mentioning me, demanding that councillors who had intended to stand down, but whose terms were extended as a result of the cancellation of the 2020 local elections, make their intentions for the coming year clear.
IN increasing Labour’s vote by more than 30,000 county wide, and taking Labour into a clear second place, Chris Vince has declared that ‘Labour are clearly the only viable opposition to the Tories across Essex, and this result gives us a strong base to go forward and to articulate a clear vision for the future.’
FOLLOWING his successful re-election campaign, Cllr Tony Fish thanked his residents for voting for him. Speaking after the count, he said:
NEWLY elected Cllr Kairen Raper thanks her residents in Tilbury St. Chads Speaking after the count, Cllr Raper said: “I would like to thank all those residents of Tilbury St. Chads Ward who, on 6th May, elected me to be their Councillor. “I consider it a great privilege to represent the town in which I […]
ROGER Hirst has been elected as Essex’s Police, Fire, and Crime Commissioner (PFCC).
POLICE took over a month to disclose information about the criminal histories of suspected abusers in almost a quarter of applications for background checks approved last year, Observer analysis has found.
THURROCK Council is disappointed that Unite the Union has confirmed plans to extend its strike action – meaning that no household waste collections are expected to take place between 10 and 28 May.
THE THURROCK Tories were celebrating today after retaining control of the council holding all their seats and even taking a significant victory in Labour’s heartland of Chadwell St Mary.
THIS seat flatters to deceive. Lots of parties fancy their chances but the reality check is the 2019 result where Shane Hebb won by 608 votes.
CHRIS Vince, Essex Labour & Co-operative candidate for Police Fire & Crime Commissioner, has called upon voters in Harlow to support his vision of ‘co-operation, investment and a brighter future, and urged them not to forget the decade long ‘criminal record’ of the Tories, on polling, this Thursday.
THIS is a seat that Labour will really want to win and a seat they have been working very hard to win. The Labour candidate is Kairen Raper. Her colleagues think very highly of her and believe she can really make a difference. She will be greatly assisted by having campaigned with Tilbury St Chads […]
EAST Tilbury has a rich history of Independent councillors. For many years, Barry Palmer and John Purkiss represented the ward and they were very popular. There wasn’t a council meeting that went by when either John or Barry (or possibly both) would stand up and protect the interests of East Tilbury.
IN many ways, the Conservative candidate for The Homesteads seems to encapsulate the image of the Tory run Thurrock Council.
THIS has always been a fascinating war. It has bounced around different parties for years. It had solid Labour councillors such as Gordon Gambier and one term wonders such as Richard Speight.
THE last time this reporter made a prediction about Carl Morris winning, we predicted he would win the General Election seat of Thurrock in 2010 by 1100. He lost by 92. He has never forgiven us. Never. It would be good to see Carl back in the chamber. A former mayor and a big best […]
WE alway remember one Labour candidate telling us how he put on weight whist standing in Orsett. It was all the cake the good ladies of Orsett, Bulphan and Horndon-on-the-Hil
A SOLID Conservative ward and no indication that it will change. In 2019, the Conservative candidate won by 532 votes. With just two candidates, Labour will do well to keep it under 500. We can’t see anyone that will change things. Now and again, Labour make noises about the ward and although they have a […]
