Who we are.
The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

LibDems in Chichester.
Chichester has a long history of liberalism, with the preceding Liberal Party having strong local foundations for hundreds of years prior to the SDP-Liberal merger in 1988. Chichester City Council had a majority Liberal Democrat presence for decades until 2015. We have also been a significant force on the local District Council since it was formed in 1974.
