:-o Sounds very generous, depending on how long it's intended to last.

But for badgeholders, presumably rather than plates? And HC and PH?

It would be interesting to find out which political party is in control of the Authority given trade (TAXI and P/Hire) grants from the ARG or LRG funds.

One gets the feeling Labour controlled Authorities are dragging their feet and that includes mine.

Thurrock is Conservative-controlled at the moment, according to Wiki.

Conservative-led administration since 2016, although no overall control until 2019:
