Terry Westgate
I am a Canterbury City Councillor for St Stephen's Ward, and have lived in the area since 1975. I started the St Michael's Road Area Residents' Association in 2010 and added the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme shortly after as we were experiencing problems with anti social behaviour and late night noise. Over the last few years there has been a steady improvement in the situation and we continue to address the issues in a variety of ways both through the RA and NHW. Our aim is to continually improve the area for the benefit of all residents.
