Thurrock BC leader Andy Smith has welcomed proposals from the Local Government Commission for the electoral arrangements in the impending unitary authority.

A new ward, represented by two councillors, and the splitting of others to create a total of ten additional members, reflects the areas increasing population.

'The commission's proposals are very sensible and very much in line with the ideas that we presented to them for a fairer system for people in the borough representing changes that have taken place,' said cllr Smith.

'I hope that with the extra ten councillors we will see some new blood as well as people with solid experience standing for the new unitary council next May. The new arrangements will put us in a good position to take on unitary status and take Thurrock into the next century.'
