8 November 2019

Cllr Aaron Watkins, Cabinet member for environment, has welcomed dust suppression measures introduced by the Port of Tilbury.

During a visit to the port, which took place on Thursday 31 October, Cllr Watkins was given a tour of the huge site and was told about the work taking place to control and monitor dust.

Cllr Watkins said: "I know that dust is a real concern for Tilbury residents so I was really pleased to see the dust management processes the Port of Tilbury has in place and to hear of the investment they are making with further dust suppression measures.

"It was a good opportunity to talk with the Port of Tilbury about the potential role they can play as Thurrock Council looks to refresh the air quality and health strategy, and how we will work collaboratively with key local businesses and partners across the borough to make the borough a cleaner and greener place to live and work."
