The North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats

We are the champions for liberal values across North Hertfordshire. Locally, we will use our position on the District and County councils to deliver meaningful and progressive change on behalf of residents. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain engaged in Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change. If you share our values and objectives, please give us your support. (NB. This site only covers North Herts. If you live in Stevenage, please visit www.stevenagelibdems.org.uk).

    Recent spells of heavy rain have revealed failings in the way in which the County Council maintains the road side drains and gullies, with flooding of roadside properties in Ashwell, Radwell and Weston amongst others.

    Lib Dem County Councillor Steve Jarvis said, "Although the council now cleans gullies in some of the areas most vulnerable to flooding every six months the pipes between the drains are not kept clean so when there is heavy rain the gullies overflow. In addition it can take six months to get a gully dug out if it has been completely blocked by mud.

    Party Reform

    This month we received a report on progress against the Thornhill Report and we felt that the party was making good progress on some of the key points raised.

    Whilst there is still much to do, there is a feeling that what we are setting in place will be good for the future. The Party is improving its ability to work across different parts of itself (HQ, ALDC, the States and Regions) and, despite the challenge of Coronavirus, is ploughing on with the reforms necessary to elect more Liberal Democrats.

    Our Party is going through a period of change. The General Election Review was one of the reviews commissioned by the Party, to look at how we organise ourselves for elections and how we can do things better.

    The Party has also asked for a review of Party organisations - known as AOs, Associated Organisations and SAOs, Specified Associated Organisations. These are organisations in the Party that cover everything, from Green Liberal Democrats to Liberal Democrat Women and everything in between. If you are a member of one of the Party's organisations, then this survey is for you. We want your views both on the support the Party gives to your organisation and what changes can and should be made.

    His death rocked the world. It sparked overwhelmingly peaceful Black Lives Matter protests. It demanded of all of us that we look at what we can do to tackle racial injustice.

    And the Liberal Democrats are no exception.

    Over the past three months, we have stepped up our efforts to combat racism - whether conscious or unconscious, individual or institutional - wherever we find it.
