The Liberal Democrats are proud to have been in control of Newcastle City Council from 2004 until 2011. In that time, we cut waste and contained council tax rises, oversaw improvements in educational achievement and spent more on the services people said they wanted, such as community safety, street cleaning, recycling and the environment.

The Liberal Democrats are a powerful and effective force on the Council, with 19 members, one of the strongest Lib Dem Groups in the country. Conservatives and UKIP have no councillors. We chair the Scrutiny Committees.

We hope that you enjoy visiting our website, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any more information.

"We see people as individuals, not as opposing tribes lined up against each other across borders. We favour co-operation over isolation - your failure is not my success. We stand up against abuse of power, for entrepreneurship and individual endeavour. We see immigration as a blessing not a curse and value the contribution of every single individual has to make to this beautiful country of ours"
