Welcome to the new Gateshead Liberal Democrats website. Our team of 17 Councillors represent seven wards across Gateshead. We actively campaign across the borough, and we gained a new councillor in each of the last two 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 and Heworth
  • Saltwell
  • Whickham North
  • Whickham South and Sunniside

Our new website includes information to help you get involved in community issues and access useful services such as reporting fly-tipping and responding to planning applications. You will also find contact details for each Councillor and updates about what we are doing.

The Death of Alexei Navalny

Navalny cast a light on the corruption of Putin and his cronies. His tragic death, at the hands of Putin, cannot and will not stifle the democratic ideals that he fought for. Together, let us be a voice that speaks for those who have been silenced.
