Dane Buckman lives in Canterbury and is a self-employed landscape gardener. Having taken on an apprentice in the past he understands the importance of that scheme. And having been an apprentice, he also understands how it can be improved.
Dane plays football for a couple of local teams and is treasurer of Old Park & Chequers Wood group. Sports facilities and open spaces are things that must not disappear from our community.
Having rented on York Road he really wants housing to be affordable for local people but recognises that the infrastructure needs to be there.
Dane realises the need for better insulation for homes at an affordable price and would work for a local retro-fitting training scheme to start in Canterbury.A keen cyclist, he sees the need for improvement of cycle paths and would also like to see the park-and-ride improved. Bus fares need to be cheaper and there is no need for the gyratory system in Wincheap.
Having two children he knows how important it is to make our streets safer. Young people need somewhere to hang out and socialise.
He wants to see the high street that has a vibrant eclectic atmosphere with lots of shops. These have to be made available at affordable rents.
Recycling has to be made easier so bins do not block the pavements and the process of contacting the right person at the council made a lot simpler.
