Your Representatives


Dozens of Arun Liberal Democrat members have been elected onto local councils - including West Sussex County Council, Arun District Council, Littlehampton Town Council, Bognor Regis Town Council and other Parish Councils.

The importance of Arun Liberal Democrats standing, and being elected, is illustrated by the role our councillors play as the largest group on Arun District Council, and as the official opposition on West Sussex County Council; holding the Conservatives to account and preventing their dominance.

Our councillors are ordinary people who give their time to fight for local communities across the Arun District. If you think you have the passion and determination to fight for your community and become a Liberal Democrat Councillor, please get in touch with us.
