Ely & District Progressives

Local people attempting to shake up local politics



Ely and District Progressives are people like you who want to transform and refresh local politics to give a fairer representation of voters’ interests and to better serve the needs of our shared community.

We believe that supporters of progressive parties and caring local people with no ties to any political party can work together to make a positive difference to each other’s lives

Our aim is to:

  • Promote local democracy: We want more people to vote in our local elections.
  • Support policies that have a positive impact on local people
  • Build and encourage cooperation around these policies amongst progressive parties, independent candidates and local voters.
  • Help elect councillors who will commit to these policies.
  • Hold councillors to account where good policies are being ignored.
