    Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Boris and stop Brexit.

    The more Liberal Democrat MPs we have in Parliament, the stronger our hand will be in stopping Johnson's catastrophic Brexit plans. We have legislation ready to go to secure a People's Vote with the option to stay in the EU.

    Alan Bullion is the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Gillingham and Rainham

    In response to speculation that Boris Johnson might try to revive the failed 'Boris Island' airport project in the Thames Estuary, Alan Bullion said: "I spoke up against the potential destruction of farmland and bird and wildlife sanctuaries on the peninsula in 2014 during the Euro election at a public meeting organised by the RSPB and Kent Wildlife Trust. We will continue to oppose any such move at all costs in order to protect our precious Kent countryside and its food production and rare species."

  • Beach Huts on Folkestone sea front
    Article: Dec 6, 2019

    I 'm delighted to report that the Folkestone Lower Leas Park Beach Chalets Scheme (which was to see 58 huts removed, 16 retained and renovated and 120 wooden huts installed) has been substantially amended more than DOUBLING the number of existing chalets to be retained.

    Following interventions and protests on the orginal scheme by local residents, heritage groups and Councillors (including my moving amendments to the scheme at the most recent full Council meeting) Folkestone and Hythe District Council (and the Trustees of the Folkestone Parks and Please Grounds, who are subtly different) have confirmed the scheme has now been amended to retain chalets 1-27 and the 8 tiered chalets. Those 35 huts / chalets are the ones of most historical interest along that stretch, some dating back around 100 years. The chalets / huts that will still be removed are generally a little less old and with less heritage value.

    Folkestone and Hythe District Council will prosecute those they find flytipping in the area. Flytipping includes those that leave household waste in bags or even street litter bins near their household.

    A resident who repeatedly dumped household waste less than 100 metres from her Folkestone home has received a hefty fine.
