Welcome

Carmarthenshire & Pembrokeshire Liberal Democrats are a group of Liberal Democrat Members and supporters who are the present-day inheritors of a proud Welsh Liberal tradition. The roots of the old Welsh Liberal Party go back a long way and run deep in West Wales.

Historically, both Counties were Liberal and many of the communities across the area still retain strong Liberal values. Local Liberal Democrats are committed to reviving that Liberal tradition by developing modern policies for the 21st Century.

We are attracting a new generation of Liberals who have a Vision. A Vision for a confident and forward-looking Wales which is economically successful, has fairness and social justice at its core, and with Councils that are open, transparent and accountable to local people.
