Welcome to The Local Party

The Local Party supports independent political candidates at all levels of government. Communities form policies in partnership with their candidates. Party hacks will never direct your MP how to vote. Politics has become distant and toxic – let’s make it local again


We care about local issues that affect you.

Introducing the citizen’s jury

A Citizen’s Jury, also known as a citizens' assembly, is a group of people randomly selected citizen to form a jury – not unlike a jury in a criminal trial.

These citizens are presented with evidence through experts, advocates and potentially industry, so they can decide on the issue based on the best available evidence.
