About Us

Central Durham Liberal Democrats are a growing political force in Durham.

We are the local branch of the national Liberal Democrat Party and are true to the core Lib Dem values of freedom, fairness and the environment.

County Durham Liberal Democrats have a growing number of county councillors and we are the official opposition to Labour in County Durham.

The party is always on the lookout for new members or people who would like to help us in our work. We consistently campaign for fair, high quality and accountable services for local people.

The Local Party

The Party brings together many local supporters, activists and members. New members are always welcome. You can join here

Members annually elect an Executive Committee – the local Councillors are held to account by the Executive, and it is the Executive who give direction to the party in Durham.
