Get involved

This is a great time to get involved with the work of the Green Party.  Party membership is now soaring again following recent local election activity and success, and the growing recognition of the threat of climate change.

  • Membership currently stands at over 4,900 in the North West (compared with less than 2,000 five years ago).
  • North West Green Parties continue to win council seats at all levels - We have had fantastic results in the May 2023 elections both retaining and significantly increasing our footprint across the region
  • At a national level we have increased our number of local councillors by a significant 200 in the May 2023 elections and highlights include having full control of West Suffolk Council and gains not just in urban areas but also in rural areas if the country.
  • The North West Green party is now looking forward to more local elections, mayoral elections and the General Election when called. 

The coming years will bring new challenges. We will have, for the next year, a Conservative government which pays scant regard to the coming climate emergency. The Labour party, developing and constantly changing it's strategy to try and attract a broad range of voters.  Labour is likely to continue its lengthy period of introspection under the new leader Sir Kier Starmer.

The government continues to alter the EU's standards on our environment, on our working conditions, on our air quality and on our food? Despite the challenges, the need for a consistently radical Party with policies to tackle our social and environmental crises is as strong as ever. It is important that the Green Party continues to speak truth to power and develop it's own policy in a democratic and friendly way.

North West Green Party

The Green Party is the only major political party in the UK that commits to a life based on democracy and justice within the planet's limits.

The Green Party has always dared to be different,  and we’ve always known the power of good ideas. We understand that inequality is not just unfair, but damaging to everyone in society. 

We understand that not everyone wants to live to work. The Green Party has the bold solutions to deal with the problems we face today: recovering from the impact of coronavirus, while tackling the climate and biodiversity crises and creating compassionate communities where everyone can thrive.

Green Party Programme for Local Government

The Government’s ideological commitment to austerity has seen £50 billion cut from council services since 2010. These cuts - forced through from Westminster - have closed libraries, forced councils to sell public land and laid off the council staff that collect litter, repair roads and care for older people. The cross party Local Government Association estimates that councils face a further shortfall of £8 billion by 2025 with the most basic of services being eroded, decimating our communities.

A vote for the Green Party in May is a vote against such outdated, disastrously imposed establishment thinking. It is a vote for a new, fresh approach.

The Green Party is committed to campaigning to restore the £50 billion of public money taken from councils – having Greens elected to councils will send a strong message to Westminster that people have had enough of losing cherished local services.

At a local level, having Greens on your council means having champions for investment in local services, fighting to improve public spaces, increase access to social housing and to provide more walking, cycling and public transport opportunities.

It means having councillors looking beyond the tired stock answers and convention-sapped ambitions of the establishment parties. Green councillors embrace the new and relish the bold; harnessing resident’s skills and trusting local knowledge to solve local challenges, from declining high streets to under resourced public transport.

Unlike councillors from the establishment parties, Greens are not subject to a Party whip that orders them to vote according to the needs of the party machines and their colleagues in Westminster. This means they are free to put the residents they represent front and centre, and to fight without fear of favour for their interests - and the radical solutions that will make their lives better.
