Road markings

Request: 

First it’s the road markings to thank NHS workers.

Now signage all over Thurrock. Coronavirus Stay Alert to Stay Safe.

How much did all this cost the Council Tax payers of Thurrock?

And for your information we left the European Union.

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 at 23:00 GMT so why has signage made Reference to the European Union by using the emblem ?

If you continue to waste Council Tax payers money I will let you take me to court for my Council Tax and invite the press.

I expect an answer on the cost this is a waste of money.

Response: 

The NHS Thank You road markings were provided at no cost to the council.

This signage is wholly funded either through the Emergency Active Travel fund provided by the Department for Transport or through the Reopening High Streets Safely Fund. As part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the High Streets Fund requires the appropriate branding requirements be adhered to, including the use of the ERDF logo.
