    Kent residents will suffer increased council tax bills next year as the County Council is set to increase its council tax charge by 4.99%. This means an increase of £52.32 pa for a Band C homeowner. The Government is cutting its funding of the County Council by another £46.4 million. Meanwhile the County Council's Conservative Cabinet is struggling with increased demand for crucial services and cost pressures.

    Despite additional council tax revenue from increased housing , KCC is planning savings of £53.4 million largely through service cuts and increased charges. Further staff cuts are planned saving £6.4 million and putting further pressure on KCC's beleaguered workforce. £8.2 million of the planned cuts have not yet been specified.

    Congratulations to Angie Curwen on coming second in the by-election for the Villages ward for Thanet District Council.

    She had the support of 25% of those voting, which was a huge increase on previous Lib Dem results in this ward, and comfortably beat Labour, an independent and the Greens.

    The re-election of the Conservative candidate in the scheduled 2019 elections will be hotly contested.This result was achieved with a lot of support from Thanet members, and also a helping hand from members in Canterbury and other local Lib Dem parties.

  • Fly-tipping on Canterbury Road near Sarre Dec 2017
    Article: Jan 1, 2018

    Villages report that fly-tipping and litter problems are important challenges to improving life in Thanet

    49% of respondents to our Thanet Villages survey in December 2017 are rightly concerned that there is a big fly-tipping problem, particularly in the rural areas surrounding our villages.

    Irresponsible dumping of waste takes place on the highway, lay byes and private land.
