Your local Green Party Councillors in TDC
Your Green Party local Councillors Mike Garner (St Peters), Trevor Roper (Thanet Villages) and Becky Wing (Ramsgate Central Harbour) in chambers. Mike is also a Broadstairs Town Councillor and Becky is a Town Councillor for Ramsgate.
We fully support the Labour Group's climate emergency Motion.
We will work hard to improve the lives of local residents and to protect our environment.
We believe the three most important long-term issues we need to address in Thanet are:
- poverty and social inequality
- education, training and jobs
- our 3-layer Local Authority structure that’s expensive, bureaucratic and creates blockages to change
However, we believe three immediate issues we need to tackle are:
- the threat of a cargo hub at Manston airport, which will blight lives and destroy tourism, but create very few new jobs as cargo processing is largely automated
- the industrialisation of Ramsgate Port
- the loss of medical services at QEQM and across the District, including the proposal to site the nearest Hyper-Acute Stroke Unit at Ashford.
