Welcome to Canterbury District Green Party
"I would like to welcome you to the Canterbury District Green Party website. We campaign throughout the Canterbury area on a variety of issues and initiatives that we believe would make this a more pleasant, prosperous and sustainable place in which to live and work. Our local Green Party is currently, or has been, involved in a large number of local campaigns, including:
- Turn Your Key (asking drivers to turn off their engines while waiting at a level crossing)
- Canterbury Clean Air
- Homelessness – petition on permanent shelter in Canterbury
- Whitstable Spar supermarket – gifting food past its sell-by date to casserole club for pensioners in need
- Tree felling for St George’s St refurbishment – successful petition against
- Canterbury Station Road West multi-storey car park – petition and protest campaign
- Lobbying for town councils for Canterbury, Whitstable & Herne Bay
- Objections to constituency boundary changes
- Protesting plans to close acute wards at K&C Hospital
- Pressing for more recycling provision in the District
- Lobbying for multi-compartment bins on the high streets
We are currently campaigning hard in Whitstable, applying the Green Party Target To Win strategy with the aim of getting our first Green Councillor in the local elections in 2019. To see our priorities for those elections, go to our Local Manifesto here.
If you would like to get involved, learn more about us, ask us any questions about our views or policies, or simply comment on the website, please don't hesitate to get in touch."
