Scrap all plans to spend £10m on new Thurrock Council offices

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


The Tories of Thurrock are planning to squander £10m or much more on rebuilding the Council Offices in Grays.  Full council have already voted AGAINST the plans but the Tory Cabinet are forging on regardless. The original planning application was REJECTED and then they were approved when opposition Councillors were unable to attend a meeting.

The business case is extremely loose - see here - https://www.thurrockindependent.com/2019/09/04/civic-office-plans-lack-of-detail-and-unknown-costs-concern-committee-officer-says-it-chicken-and-egg-situation/

Local business will closed down as a result, the popular Angel Cafe will be closing down this Saturday (Oct 19th).

The Tories of Thurrock ARE OUT OF TOUCH and don't give a hoot about democracy.  Now is the time for you to add your voice, our target is 10,000 local people to cry with one voice "STOP WASTING OUR MONEY!"

These funds should be spent on directly improving the lives of people who live in South Ockendon, Stifford Clays, Grays, Tilbury, East Tilbury, Orsett, Horndon, Linford, Aveley, Purfleet, West Thurrock, Stanford-le-Hope and Corringham - SO PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SEND A MESSAGE TO ROB GLEDHILL, LEADER OF THE COUNCIL, TERRY PICCOLO, MAYOR OF THURROCK and THURROCK CONSERVATIVE CABINET.

...and when it comes to May next year, remember who wants to ignore the people of Thurrock.
