LTC Task Force Meetings

The LTC Task Force was formed in Sept 2017 by Thurrock Council.  The meeting takes place monthly, and TCAG have had a seat on the committee from the very beginning.  National Highways (formerly Highways England)/LTC are sometimes in attendance.

Members of the public can usually attend and sit in the public area, but not ask questions directly.  Meeting is usually held in the Civic Offices, New Road, Grays, Essex RM17 6SL.  Please check the agenda on council website (usually released a week before the meeting) for meeting location and any other updates as things can sometimes change.  

Questions can be emailed to any of the following Councillors who are on the Task Force Meeting up to 3 working days before the meeting.

Alternatively you can email your question to and we will do our best to ask your question.  Please just be aware not to leave it right to the last minute to email us your question!!

Next LTC Task Force Meeting

At the January 2024 Task Force meeting it was voiced that there is unlikely to be another meeting until such time as a decision is made, unless there is a need before that.  We will endeavour to update this page as more information is available, but please be aware it is unlikely there will be an LTC Task Force meeting before the Secretary of State’s announcement which is due by 20th June 2024.  The Planning Inspectorate are currently preparing their recommendation report which is due to be submitted to the Secretary of State by 20th March 2024.  There is also a chance there could be further post examination consultation once it reaches Secretary of State stage, watch this space!

6th Feb 2024 – It was bought to our attention that the agenda for Thurrock Council’s General Services meeting in February 2024 included the proposed closure of the LTC Task Force, amongst other committees.  TCAG have written to all Thurrock Councillors to express our concerns over this.  Read more.

14th Feb 2024 – Please see our ‘Future of LTC Task Force’ update to learn about what happened at the General Services meeting, and how the decision to close LTC Task Force has been deferred.
