Working to ensure a thriving future for all of our communities

As Liberal Democrats, we want to improve and enrich the lives of everyone across Guildford Borough, with no one forgotten and no one excluded. That is why we are continuing to invest in our local public services, people's well-being, local infrastructure and supporting local businesses to thrive.

Our action so far...

  • Kept council tax rises below inflation and working with Waverley Borough Council to deliver millions of back-office savings over the next few years
  • Developing a masterplan to tackle flooding risk and guide the regeneration of the town centre and the riverside
  • Stood up to property developers and R4GV to demand large developments include affordable housing
  • Ensured continued financial support for our arts and heritage throughout the pandemic and energy crisis
  • Provided leadership throughout the Covid pandemic by providing food parcels, access to medicines and other support for residents most at risk
  • Developed The Hive into an all-age community hub to act as our base to provide services and support for those most in need across all our communities
  • Launched a new economic strategy to support the creation of new jobs in our borough
