A referendum is being held on Thursday, 23 June to decide whether Britain should leave or remain in the European Union.
Simply put a referendum is a vote in which everyone (who is entitled to vote) can take part. Usually, voters give a "Yes" or "No" answer to a question. Whichever answer gets more than half of the votes is considered to have won. This referendum is to decide if the UK should be part of something bigger or try and go backwards and start again alone.
Canterbury Liberal Democrats are taking a motion to Council calling on government to rethink its relocation policy.
This follows the announcement last week of 200 families to be moved from Redbridge to Canterbury Howe Barracks.
"We are deeply worried by the prospect of over 200 families being displaced from Redbridge to be housed in dwellings that could, and should, have gone to local families in desperate need of accommodation," said Lib Dem group leader Cllr Michael Dixey. "We understand and share the feelings of all those 2,500 local people who are on the social housing waiting list."
Kent is Britain's Gateway to Europe. Liberal Democrat Leader, Tim Farron, has written exclusively to Kent News about the forthcoming referendum on Britain's EU membership. Tim provides a strong and compelling argument for Kent residents to vote to remain in the EU.
