PIP HAZELTON Westgate Ward, Canterbury
Pip Hazelton, current Canterbury City Councillor and Westgate ward resident, can be seen regularly in the parks with her grandchildren, shopping locally, supporting the market traders, litter picking or listening to residents’ concerns.
A retired social worker and long-standing trustee of a local domestic abuse charity, Pip is committed to social justice and giving a voice to the most vulnerable.
Working tirelessly on issues such as night-time safety, river pollution and traffic calming, she is passionate about creating a cleaner, greener, safer city for residents to be proud of and enjoy.
Supportive of local businesses, Pip asks hard questions in the council chamber to help get our shops back on their feet after Covid. She successfully campaigned with others to save our trees in the High Street, and if re-elected will continue to push for the return and improvement of our historic market.
Recent government money to preserve our UNESCO World Heritage sites and historic city centre is welcome and Pip is determined it will be spent wisely, consulting locally, to get best value for the benefit of all residents and to make Canterbury a vibrant, enjoyable place to work, visit and live once again.
