Gateshead Liberal Democrats

The voice of the people

Your Lib Dem Councillors

Your Councillors

A Lib Dem Council would empower residents to have a real say over issues that matter. In the meantime we speak up for people who all too often feel let down. Gateshead charges the highest levels of Council Tax for band D properties of any metropolitan borough in the country but residents feel that it is out of touch and unresponsive. That has to change!

Councillor Ron Beadle

Our team of 18 Councillors represent seven wards across Gateshead. We actively campaign across the borough, and we gained a new Councillor in each of the last three elections. We have been the only Opposition to Labour on the Council since 1996.

Currently we represent:

  • Birtley
  • Dunston Hill and Whickham East
  • Low Fell
  • Pelaw, Heworth and Bill Quay
  • Saltwell
  • Whickham North and Swalwell
  • Whickham South and Sunniside

Our new website includes information to help you get involved in community issues and access useful services such as letting us know what is important to you, how the Councillors can support and updates about what we are doing for you!

Connect with a Councillor via the 'Our Team' page.
