Blessed with green spaces, a beautiful river and World Heritage buildings, Canterbury should be so much better than it is. Years of Conservative rule have brought us:
- Missed bin collections
- Threats to wildlife and open spaces
- Empty shops and a threatened street market
- Air pollution at toxic levels
- Broken street lighting
- Housing waiting lists as long as ever
Instead of investing in these important areas, the council has wasted millions on an unnecessary car park and yet another shopping centre.
Pip Hazelton lives locally and sees these problems at first hand.
Having run a Social Services district she knows how to allocate resources to best effect and her working life has been dedicated to helping children and families. She will make your priorities her priorities.
