“Local Government For the People, By the People”


A Guide to PHF

PHF is a group of Independent Councillors, Candidates and Supporters who believe that each Councillor should be free to vote independently while able to share resources and back office support with other Independent Councillors so that they are better able to challenge the national parties. Working alongside other Independent Councillors, PHF has been providing the only consistent and effective scrutiny of the present council’s actions.

What We Want

  PHF along with other Independent Councillors have led the way in the battle against the secrecy and self- enrichment of the ruling Labour Group. We are the only group within the council who have consistently and vocally opposed the loss of services at Hartlepool Hospital We will continue to oppose any increase in council tax until such time that the council is able to demonstrate that it has its own profligate spending habits under control.

What We’re Campaigning For

the full restoration of the public’s right to question its

council during council meetings

the full declaration of personal pecuniary interests

including any business relationship with organisations,

companies or individuals which deal with HBC

the total scrapping of the misguided new parking charges

introduced in Seaton Carew and the scrapping of town

centre parking charges for the first two hours.

an end to the tax payer funding of union officials

a reduction in mileage allowances paid to staff to the levels recommended by the Inland Revenue (HMRC) a reduction of special responsibility allowances for councillors to a maximum of 25% of the basic allowance continue support the Seaton Carew Wind Turbine Action Group and ensure Seaton Ward residents do not have decisions forced upon them to finally bring an end to the 10 Year Longscar Centre farce to never support a Council Tax increase until council tax  reaches a more appropriate level and until the council can demonstrate proper control of its own spending. the early end and landscaping of the Landfill Sites that continue to impact on the beauty of Seaton Carew and the lives of its residents.
