Your Representatives


Over a dozen 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 Offical Opposition on both West Sussex County Council and Arun District Councils; holding the Conservatives to account and preventing their total 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.

For more details of each Council's responsibilities and your elected representatives, click on the respective Council's link.
