Portsmouth Liberal Democrats

Portsmouth Liberal Democrats are a family of committed local campaigners and Councillors.  

We campaign year-round to support the election of Liberal Democrat Councillors and MPs. Locally, we have been very successful in the last 20 years. We led Portsmouth Council 2009-2014 and regained control of it in 2018. 

Our members and ward teams are found across the city but our office is in the heart of the city in Fratton.
