The local government elections originally scheduled for May 2020 were delayed by the national lockdown and will now take place on 6th May 2021.
These elections are an excellent opportunity to vote for candidates who care deeply about the environment, air quality, green spaces and sustainable transport that directly affect quality of life in our local area. In Adur, half of the District Councillors are re-elected every two years. In 2021, all 70 West Sussex County Council seats are up for re-election as is the Police and Crime Commissioner.
The Green Party has had recent success in local elections:
If you have not voted before, please register to vote by the deadline of 23:59 on 19th April 2021 in order to make your voice heard on election day.

We are delighted to announce that Gabe Crisp is your Green Party candidate for St. Nicolas Ward, Shoreham-by-Sea.
"As a science teacher, mum and long-time resident, I care deeply about our local community. I live in Old Shoreham Road and remember what it was like walking into town with children and a buggy, dodging dog mess, litter and stationary traffic. Now it’s even worse. Our roads and pavements are in urgent need of repair. The A270, A283 and High Street are congested and the air that our children and grandchildren breathe is polluted by exhaust fumes. I worry about their health and their future.
Why am I standing? I love finding out what matters to people and trying to find solutions
to problems. I always work hard to make our local area even better. I care about people and look forward to working with you and for you. I’m doing this for my friends and family, for my neighbours and for everyone who lives in this community. That’s why I’m standing for election.
I am hard-working, caring and determined. I would be honoured to be your representative on Adur Council and to get even more done for you as your councillor."
Leslie Groves WIlliams will be standing for West Sussex County Council in the Shoreham South Division.
"As a Shoreham resident and parent, I love running my own business and volunteering in our local criminal justice and education sectors. I believe it’s time for change! Lots more people are voting Green, realising that we must act (not just speak) on the climate emergency, to heal our divided communities and give our children a future worth having. I will work incredibly hard to find things we have in common through listening - knowing passionately we can find solutions that work for each of us. Vote Green. For our Future."
