Priorities for 2019 Local Elections


Lewes District Green Party is the real opposition to the Conservatives. This local election we are fielding our largest ever slate of 39 District Council candidates, the second highest number of all the parties, as well as candidates for Lewes, Newhaven and Seaford Town Councils.


Our hard working councillors are prepared to stand up for the communities they represent, and are not afraid to do things differently- because local people have had enough of the same old approach.  


As well as individual priorities for each of the wards we stand in, decided following two years of conversation with local residents, our District wide priorities for this election are:


  • Ensuring there is enough new housing that is truly affordable for local people

  • Fighting overdevelopment

  • Tackling climate change and declaring a climate emergency

  • Working the hardest for local communities on the issues that are important to them, whether that’s litter, dog mess or road safety.
