Welcome to the Bracknell Lib Dems website.

All of the elected offices in the Bracknell Forest area have been run exclusively by the Tories for over 15 years, in that time public services in health, housing, transport, roads and in many other areas of responsibility have deteriorated or stagnated. To find out more, please read our Local Articles & News under Local Lib Dems in the above menu. Join us in our campaign to hold the local Conservative and Labour councillors and Tory MP to account for their failings and to get value for money in local government.

Please read the BRACKNELL FOREST LIB DEM MANIFESTO

You can keep up with all the latest information via our facebook & twitter pages.

We are the only local political party to regularly expose the failings and malpractice of our local politicians, here is a recent selection:

    On the 23rd June there was another vote in RBWM, the Sunninghill and South Ascot Ward by-election. We caught up with the Liberal Democrat candidate Tamasin Barnbrook to talk about her experience.

    What does being a Liberal Democrat mean to you?

    I have been a member on and off since 2010 and have supported the LibDems since I started voting at 18. I chose the party because I felt it best promoted the values of a fair, free & open society which I personally agree with. The Local Party was particularly good at getting this across and at doing things for the local area which to me seems to have more impact on people's lives than national politics. I felt I may be able to do something useful.

    Recently the hashtag #mysticclegg has been trending on twitter because of an article Nick Clegg wrote, with incredible foresight, concerning the referendum and its fallout.

    Many articles have been doing the rounds and the internet is getting excited about this isolated event. However, mystic Clegg has been a 'thing' for a good while.

  • Antony Wood and George Fussey
    Article: Jun 26, 2016

    A huge thank you to all our members who were engaged actively in this referendum. We were out canvassing in the rain, we held camp in high streets and stations and we made a difference and, even though it might not seem like it, we won. The Royal Borough voted to Remain. The figures were Remain 44,086 to Leave 37,706. It wasn't enough, but we are so proud that we got out there getting people engaged. For us that's the British spirit, fighting for decent values no matter the odds. Getting our feet on the ground and walking round to people to get them talking.

    Local Lib Dems are stressing the importance of securing a positive vote to remain in the EU in the referendum on Thursday June 23.

    Here are 5 things we are doing to make a difference right now.

    1.

    A team led by Antony Wood has been out leafleting and knocking on doors in various areas of Windsor with two clear messages. First, on a whole range of issues more is to be gained than lost by continuing to work with partners within the EU. These issues include protecting jobs, exports and our environment, and tackling crime and terrorism. Second, it is important that as many people as possible get out to vote.

    A new consultation document from the Conservative led Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead have confirmed claims made by Local Liberal Democrats six years ago about the locations the Conservatives had in mind for Green Belt development.

    Back in 2008 a headline in our Windsor Focus leaflets read "Secret Green Belt Development plans" and was accompanied by pictures of three sites we believed the Conservatives were considering. At the time Conservatives branded the content's of this leaflet as lies, however they refused to disclose their plans.

    By Wokingham Liberal Democrats

    Conservative-controlled Wokingham Borough Council has massively increased car parking charges at Dinton Pastures and California Country Parks, causing fears that many local families will now be unable to use them. This steep rise in charges is likely to put people off going to the parks, so there will be less income, not more!

    By Wokingham Liberal Democrats

    Wokingham Liberal Democrats would like to present their alternative views to the Wokingham Regeneration Scheme.

    The key point of note are:

    • Lower risk and lower cost than Council's proposed scheme
    • Provides a sustainable town centre in the long term
    • Captures as much business as possible for the local economy
    • Transferable to other towns in the Borough
    • Saves the green space at Elms Field
    • Keeps Wokingham's market town feel.
