Pre-election hustings will discuss district’s key issues


A series of pre-city council elections will take place ahead of polling day in Canterbury.

Voters will be able to quiz candidates on a range of key issues facing the district such as housing, transport and the environment.

The first is specific to the St Stephen’s ward and takes place at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Hales Drive, on Thursday, April 11. Doors open at 7pm for refreshments with the start scheduled for 7.30pm.

The second, organised by the Canterbury society, will take place at the Friends Meeting House in The Friars at 7pm for a 7.30pm start on Wednesday, April 17.

This husting does not relate to a particular ward but to the parties standing in the Canterbury district. Each party will be represented by one person. Independent candidares are also being invited.

Other hustings are also likely to be organised in other locations before the May 2 polling day.
