  • Demand Better for Sandgate and West Folkestone
    Article: Apr 11, 2019
    By Tim Prater, Liberal Democrat Candidate in Sandgate and West Folkestone

    I love Sandgate. I hope you do too.

    I've lived in the centre of Sandgate for the last 15 years. I run my business from the village. I'm in and around Sandgate pretty much every day. I'm a trustee of the Chichester Hall in the middle of town, and have been honoured to have been a Sandgate Parish Councillor for the last eight years and the Vice Chairman of the Parish Council for the last two.

  • CPZ 2 hour parking notice / sign
    Article: Apr 2, 2019

    You spoke, we listened, and have got ACTION.

    We had a HUGE response to one of our recent leaflets asking about YOUR parking concerns locally. THANK YOU.

    We've taken your top local parking problems to Folkestone and Hythe Parking Services, and are reporting back.

    In general, most feedback was that the extended CPZ had improved parking for local residents, but that there were still issues. That's what we're trying to address - ways to make the scheme better for all.

    The Folkestone and Hythe Liberal Democrat Party and Shepway Green Party have agreed a cooperation deal for the May 2019 elections for Folkestone and Hythe District Council (FHDC).

    This form of progressive alliance has been successfully adopted elsewhere in the country at previous elections by the two national parties and improves the chances of challenging the long-standing overwhelming Conservative majority on FHDC.
