Welcome to the Medway Liberal Democrats .. Working tirelessly to improve the area of Medway for everyone, no matter their background

From our Chair, John Castle

We believe that the people of Medway deserve an area to live and work where they can fulfil their potential. Therefore we are committed to bring about change to improve its safety, environment, culture and economy so that everyone benefits, whether they visit for a day or live and work in Medway.

Our group is a talented bunch of people who enjoy working together to make these changes happen. If you'd like to see how you might work with us, then check out our campaigns and sign up to become a supporter or member. We would love for you to join us.

Some of Our Recent Successes:

Liberal Democrats protect land from development, as Medway Council agrees to 'Village Green' status for Coney Banks, Daisy Banks, Barnfield and Bishops Hoath Wood

As a result of a successful 9-year campaign on the part of local Liberal Democrat, Viv Parker, these recreation and wildlife spaces have been given village green status which ensures the areas are protected from development for posterity.

Our Current Campaigns:

Building on the success of improving our local environment, Medway Lib Dems are focussing on improving local air quality around our homes, schools, recreational areas and workplaces. Gillingham has been named as one of the 30 most polluted towns in the UK (BBC May 2018) and Chatham was highlighted by Centre for Cities (Jan 2020) as one of the worst areas in the country for air quality, linking 1 in 16 deaths in Chatham with the high levels of pollution.

We are also planning a campaign to improve recycling in the Medway area. Our Local Plan should set out a clear hierarchy of waste treatment, with reuse first, followed by recycling/composting, then treating any residual waste in non-polluting ways that produce useful products like biogas. There should be very little left destined for landfill.
