Labour councillors at Thanet District Council (TDC) are seriously concerned about the impact the council's proposed hike in car parking charges will have in the area.

At TDC's Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday, Cllr Peter Campbell, on behalf of the Labour Group, proposed that the council's planned car parking increases in the five seasonal car parks be rejected with fees instead fixed at last year's prices (£1.60 for the first hour instead of the proposed £4).  With members of other parties being persuaded by the arguments and backing the proposal, this was passed by the committee as a recommendation to TDC Cabinet.

It is doubtful that Cabinet will see sense on this, despite members of the ruling UKIP party supporting the Labour proposal.

Residents and business owners are rightly fearful of the impact on their lives, businesses and communities.

South Thanet Labour Women's Big Canvas

What a fantastic day!  The sun shone and a huge crowd of women from across Thanet assembled at the Labour office in Ramsgate to form into teams to go canvassing.  What was particularly impressive was the number of first time canvassers - some a little bit anxious but all ready to give it a go.  With a brief training session they were off.  Lots more photos to follow but just a taster here of one team out and about in Newington.

 With all the canvassing done, everyone returned to base to enjoy the food that everyone had brought and to have a good chat about the session, about the election and about why we're motivated to build a better future for the many and not just the few.
