The Liberal Democrats in Rushcliffe are a growing local party, working on behalf of all the residents of Rushcliffe.

We currently have two elected Liberal Democrat members on the Conservative-controlled Rushcliffe Borough Council.

We keep in touch with local residents all year round through regular FOCUS leaflets and email updates, and we contest almost every seat in local and parliamentary elections.

The Liberal Democrats are proud to be the only party commited to fighting the damaging effects of a hard Brexit, both locally and nationally.

If we can help you in any way, please get in touch.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

    [with notes on other comments].

    The principle of development is established and I do not like it but we are where we are. I
    am pleased that 30% of dwellings are to be 'affordable' - there is a large need for rented
    social housing. I hope that, unlike the recent Wilford Lane plan, affordable housing will be
    dispersed in clusters throughout the estate not clumped in one place.

    Manifesto for Nottinghamshire County Council elections May 2017

    * Openness, fairness and equality of opportunity are our guiding principles. 

    * Austerity cuts to public services have gone too far. They have gone beyond prudent use of resources. They have caused savage reductions in support services to the most vulnerable residents: children, those with disabilities and the very elderly. 

    * Where there are choices, we value public services and looking after the environment.
