I would like to know which glyphosate-based herbicides are currently used by, or on behalf of, the council on Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) that are owned by, managed by, or under the control of the council. 

Please can you provide the data for the most recent 12-month period for which the information is available. 

Please can you also specify the amount and brand of each glyphosate-based herbicide in question, as well as the size of the area over which they are used. 


No use of Glyphosate in any of our SSSI Sites in Thurrock over the last 12 months.

You are free to use any information supplied to you for your own use, including non-commercial research purposes. However, any other type of re-use, for example, by publishing the information or issuing copies to the public will require the permission of the copyright owner.

Where the copyright is owned by Thurrock Council, you must apply to the Council to re-use the information. Please email if you wish to re-use the information you have been supplied. For information where the copyright is owned by another person or organisation, you must apply to the copyright owner to obtain their permission.

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which the council have managed your FOI request you can pursue an Internal Review by contacting us using the above email address.

Your request will be considered by a senior member of the Information Management Team who will update you with the outcome of the review.

If you remain unhappy following the outcome of your Internal Review you may wish to refer your case to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and details of this organisation can be found at . Please be advised that the ICO will not consider your case until they have confirmation that you have already been through the Internal Review stage with the council.
