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.

Injunction secured to tackle breach of planning control

31 August 2018
Thurrock Council has today secured an interim injunction for a site to the rear of Malvern Road to prohibit caravans or any other residential buildings being brought onto the land.
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.
