Jean’s victory boosts our team

Fareham Liberal Democrats’ team on the Borough Council is stronger after Thursday’s local elections, with Jean Kelly taking back the Portchester East seat from the independent group. The result makes the Lib Dems once more the main opposition group on the Council.

Jean Kelly

Our two sitting councillors who were defending their seats were safely returned – Roger Price retained his Portchester seat on Hampshire County Council, and Katrina Trott kept hers on Fareham Council. (Roger Price and Gerry Kelly are our other two sitting Fareham councillors for Portchester East.)

All of our other candidates increased the Lib Dem vote compared with 2016, the last time these particular seats were contested. (Councillors are elected for a four-year term, with half the council normally up for election every two years – this year’s elections were postponed from the 2020 cycle.)

Vision for Fareham

Our Vision for Fareham

We will work to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society. We commit to working with all parties to serve the residents of Fareham while promoting liberal democratic values in the borough.


We will promote democratic change in the running of council affairs.


We will promote the building of new homes, which actually serve local residents across all sectors of need, using Brownfield rather than Greenfield sites where possible.

We will press for better standards of design, more space and greater energy efficiency when building new homes in the borough to counterbalance falling Government standards.

Health and Social Care

We will work with Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group to preserve access to services and Public Health England to make Fareham borough a healthy environment in which to live.


We will campaign for the provision of bus services that promote residents’ independence and access to community facilities.


We will work to protect and enhance our green spaces, reduce pollution, promote recycling and provide a healthy environment for the residents.
