About

Welcome to Canterbury District Green Party



Welcome to the Canterbury District Green Party website. We campaign in Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and the villages around 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:
  • Lobbying for the pedestrianisation of parts of Whitstable and a reduction of traffic going through the town
  • Opposing the extension of the Wincheap Park & Ride onto the water meadows
  • Plastic-Free movements all over the District
  • Tree felling in a number of planned developments and local parks
  • 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
  • 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
We are currently preparing for Kent County Council elections and Canterbury City Council by-elections in Swalecliffe and Westgate, all happening in May 2021. In 2019 we missed a seat on the Council by only 9 votes! To see our priorities for local 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.
