Improvements To Thurrock's Council Housing

In a debate on housing in June 2014 Jackie highlighted the poor standard of some council housing in Thurrock and the ongoing failure by Thurrock Council to tackle the worst properties on its books.Jackie said, "The quality of one’s living accommodation can be good or bad for one’s health. We have talked about some properties being poorly maintained, but poorly maintained rented properties are not the preserve of the private rented sector. In my constituency, the worst properties are those owned by the council.
