Fighting for you in the Coldharbour by-election


Lambeth Liberal Democrats will be campaigning to win the by election in Coldharbour on Thursday 13th September.

We want to provide a strong voice for local residents in a Labour-dominated council chamber that sometimes seems more concerned with its internal battles than working for a better Lambeth.

Coldharbour especially feels taken for granted by Labour, with a popular local councillor effectively deselected before 2018 for opposing the incumbent council's roughshod approach to issues like housing.

We believe we can better represent Coldharbour and bring some much-needed balance to the town hall.

We'll be fighting on housing - for an end to Labour's war on social housing. No regeneration without balloting!
