Welcome to Canterbury District Green Party
Welcome to the Canterbury District Green Party website. We are members of the Green Party of England and Wales and 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.
The Green Party is growing fast, locally and nationally. We represent people in Westminster and in a record number of local councils, as well as in the London Assembly.
In Gorrell ward in Whitstable we elected our first Green Councillor to Canterbury City Council in a 2021 by-election, to add that much needed voice to the Council chamber to address the critical issues that the older parties are not even discussing. We expect to win more seats in 2023.
We rely on people power rather than corporate finance in all that we do. Get involved with us today so that we can achieve so much more for the Canterbury district.
The Green Party Political Programme sets out what Greens are in politics to do: to end the system that keeps hurting the environment and all of us who rely on it - and to build a better alternative.
This Programme isn't like other parties' manifestos, it has not been squeezed through focus groups and stripped down according to the latest polling. Instead it has been built from policies proposed and voted on by our members, looking to secure the long term future of the places and people they love.
It's a vision of a better world, and together we can deliver it.
