A Progressive Alliance on DDDC

The Liberal Democrats, Labour and the Green Party have agreed to run Derbyshire Dales District Council for the next 4 years as a Progressive Alliance.

Steve Flitter, the Leader of the Liberal Democrats on DDDC said - We are delighted to come together as 3 progressive Parties to offer the residents and businesses of the Derbyshire Dales a new approach to local politics. We know that our District faces many challenges, not least the cost of living crisis, the shortage of affordable housing for our young families and the threat to our environment from new developments and pollution.

Working together we will support our communities in the best and most effective way, and provide them with genuinely value-for-money services.

Robert Court - Our candidate for the next General Election

Robert Court, who lives in Foolow and was our candidate in 2019, has been re-selected as our candidate at the next General Election. Following the recent boundary changes, this includes all wards in Derbyshire Dales District and the adjacent wards of Alport, Hilton, Hatton and Crich. You can contact Robert at robertcourt.libdems@gmail.com.

For the first time for 24 years, the Conservatives are not running Derbyshire Dales District Council. Following the May elections, we have a progressive alliance in charge led by the Liberal Democrats. Three parties will be collaborating after the electorate clearly voted for change. No longer can one party do whatever it likes and take voters for granted.
