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

Rod & Karrar at Boundary Rd Park ()

Councillors Rod Jones and Karrar Khan

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.

  • Boundary road play area
    Article: Apr 29, 2018

    Play areas for children and young people will be specified within Rushcliffe's policy which is used to consider planning applications. Liberal Democrat Councillor Rod Jones raised this and gained agreement.

    In supporting the Local Plan Part 2 at the Council meeting on 26 April, he referred to residents feelings that the Borough is being crammed. He called on the Council to ask other authorities to get ahead of the growth and stop lagging behind. He cited the County Highways weak approach to provision for on- site parking in West Bridgford; GP surgeries which are creaking from East Leake to East Bridgford, from Bingham to West Bridgford and the high pressure in many areas on places in Primary and Secondary Schools.
