    This is the plan for the brand new 4th slip road at Wincheap and the revised park and ride. It's a bit complicated so trace the red arrows to see how it works.

    It shows a shorter than standard slip road off the A2 going into a hairpin bend then magically merging with traffic going to the Park and Ride. But if you think that's dangerous keep following the red arrows. These show how traffic will get on the A28 towards Ashford and the new housing in Thanington.

    Canterbury City Council hasn't built a single council house for seven years. According to the council's own figures the number of new affordable* homes becoming available each year is less than 90 - well below the council's target of 240.

    At the same time around 2,500 individuals and families are stuck on the waiting list for housing, many in unsuitable or temporary accommodation. The human cost of the situation is felt particularly keenly at Christmas when families sharing one-bedroom flats and people housed miles away from friends and family struggle to enjoy what should be the most wonderful time of year.
