Action taken on unauthorised vehicle movements in Stanford-le-Hope

6 July 2020
Enforcement action taken by Thurrock Council could see companies who continue to drive HGVs and lorries on residential streets during anti-social hours taken to court.
HGVs and lorries have been causing significant disruption to residential streets near a Stanford-le-Hope industrial estate outside the permitted hours of 7am to 7pm. Despite notices being served in December last year, continued out-of-hours movements of vehicles leaving and heading towards an occupier on Stanhope Industrial Estate in Wharf Road have sparked further complaints from residents living nearby.

Landowner in a mess after not complying with planning notice over alleged cesspit

26 November 2018
A landowner in Corringham has been fined after failing to comply with a planning notice, sending a clear message that Thurrock Council will not tolerate planning breaches.
Ricky MacCallum, of Aluric Close, Chadwell St Mary was served a planning contravention notice by the council in November 2017, requesting information about an alleged cesspit installed on his land in Fobbing Road, Corringham.
He failed to complete and return the notice within the required 21 days, however, and has still not done so.

A Temporary Stop Notice (TSN) was served on the site on Friday to cease unauthorised activity on the land, but this was subsequently breached which led to the council seeking the injunction.
