About

Islington Liberal Democrats are an active group of local residents, campaigning and working hard towards creating an ambitious Islington that every resident can be proud to call their home.

We campaign on a number of local issues that come under our vision of creating a stronger local economy, a fairer borough with opportunities for all.

 

Stronger Local Economy

 

We work with local businesses, community groups and the voluntary sector to bring innovation to the borough, whilst also working hard to promote our local shopping areas, to encourage more residents to buy locally and make Islington an excellent place for tourists and visitors to enjoy.

By working with local businesses, Islington Lib Dems have provided apprenticeships and jobs for local young people to develop their skills and give them an excellent start to their career.

 

Fairer Borough

 

Islington Lib Dems have campaigned to ensure that our council tax is spent in the most effective way possible. We have tirelessly pushed the council to make improvements to the poor quality housing repairs service that cause so much unhappiness to so many, taking on individuals’ cases and helping ensure that everyone in the borough has a safe and well maintained place to live.

We continue to campaign to bring the ultra low emissions zone into Islington and to improve cycle paths. This ensures that the way we live our lives today does not negatively impact future generations.

 

Opportunities For All

 

Unlike the other political parties, for Islington Lib Dems it does not matter your background or where you’ve come from. We want to create an Islington that means that all people can achieve their aspirations and that the council supports everyone in doing that, whilst offering world class public services.

Our membership is as diverse as the borough, with members coming from a mix of demographic groups. What we share is the vision to create a borough that all people can achieve their potential. We want our youngest residents the best start in life with excellent schools, our older residents the best care for when they need it and for everyone a high standard level of services from the local council.
