Eastbourne & Willingdon Lib Dems

  • richmond park by-election
    Article: Dec 2, 2016

    In the early hours of this morning it was announced that there will be another Lib Dem in Parliament following the election of Sarah Olney in Richmond Park.

    Former Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd said "Our win in Richmond is an absolutely extraordinary result. An increase of around 30% in our vote means the Lib Dems now have a new MP in Westminster. My heartiest congratulations to Sarah Olney and our campaigns team in Richmond. Clearly in Eastbourne where I lost the last general election by a margin of only 1.5% the outcome in Richmond is very encouraging."

    You may have heard that we have a by-election in Sovereign Ward on Thursday 24th November because one of the Conservative councillors resigned. We are pleased to say we've got an excellent candidate, Roger Howarth. Stephen Lloyd said "He is a very good friend of mine, as well as being the Eastbourne Lib Dems Treasurer. I know that were he to be elected he'd make an outstanding councillor for the Ward."

  • Cllr. John Ungar presenting Certificate of Merit

    This year's Wonderful Old Town's Front Garden initiative has proven to be a great success. The initiative was started four years ago by Councillor John Ungar and the Old Town Lib Dem Team.

    This initiative was to recognise the contribution by residents to enhance the environment for us all. During June every garden which can be seen from the street was viewed, that is approaching 4,000 front gardens. From those, around 250 were awarded Certificates of Merit. The certificates were delivered over the last few weeks.

  • Councillors David Tutt and Alan Shuttleworth discussing proposals with a local resident.
    Article: Oct 4, 2016

    Many local residents are incensed about the Wates Developments plans to build on the green belt between Langney and Pevensey. More private housing on farmland is not only environmentally wront but will increase existing flooding issues, and add to the problem for local health services and road issues. Our Hospitals and GP surgeries are already overstretched. Wealden Council has already approved hundreds of new private houses around Stone Cross. Eastbourne's Liberal Democrat Councillors will fight this development, it is simply absurd to assume that Eastbourne will handle the enormous strain that this private development will put on our infrastucture.

    Local residents may be aware that the Langney Shopping Centre was recently sold to new owners. The new owners are Vale Retail who operate a number of similar shopping centres around the UK. Langney Shopping Centre is a vital part of the local community in Langney, as was demonstrated by the problems many experienced just a few years ago when it was closed following the collapse of part of the roof.
