    Wincheap 4th Slip Road Plan

    Cllr Eden-Green provides some context:

    "The plan for the 4th slip road shows it ploughing through the park and ride and the allotments. No indication is given of how or where a new park and ride is to be built, let alone funded. There are no plans for the replacement of the allotments which is a legal requirement.

    Canterbury Liberal Democrats have selected Dan Prevett as their candidate for the Westgate by-election.

    Dan is a resident of Westgate Ward where he lives with his wife Chloƫ and their two children. He has spent his career working in customer service and dispute resolution.

    "I am delighted to be the Lib Dem candidate in this by-election," said Dan. "The Lib Dems have an excellent track record of serving Westgate residents and I aim to continue that service if elected."

    The idea of a "Progressive Alliance" in Canterbury to defeat the Tories is a superficially attractive proposal. However, there are formidable political and practical obstacles to such a scenario. While there are many people who would jump at the chance to see the Conservatives lose in this constituency, there are other non-Tory voters who, if deprived of a candidate from their own party, would not vote at all. There are also significant questions about what manifesto such a candidate would stand on beyond a simple anti-Tory message. It might just work were there a genuinely independent candidate that all the opposition parties could unite behind. Think Martin Bell in Tatton (1997) or Dr Richard Taylor in Wyre Forest (2001 and 2005). There is no such person in Canterbury that we are aware of.

    Cllr Eden-Green expands on comments provided to Kent Online today

    The plan for the 4th sliproad onto the A28 has just been published. Significantly without any consultation with, or knowledge by, local Cllrs, local residents or parish cllrs.

    Frankly, I am gobsmacked!

    It shows a pedestrian crossing on the new sliproad before it reaches the bend to slow the traffic. Surely the first pedestrian crossing ever on a slip road from a motorway. Are Thanington lives so cheap?
