Forest of Dean Green Party

Welcome to our website!

We are lucky to live in the Forest of Dean, one of the most beautiful and friendly of Britain, and a place that has changed so much from its industrial past. For that reason we are convinced that the Green Party should be the natural party for the Forest of Dean. Aside from being a beautiful place to play and work, the Forest of Dean is a proud and friendly community of people who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. People of all politics worked together to save our Forests from privatisation. That campaign showed how much we all care for our environment and how, when we work together, we can protect the future for the Forest and make sure it is a healthy and sustainable place for our children and grandchildren.

The Forest of Dean Green Party has two hard working District Councillors making a real difference in the Forest of Dean, both in their wards and district wide.

It’s great to have a determined Green voice right at the heart of District governance.




Sid portraitAs District Councillor for Lydbrook and Ruardean, Sid Phelps has raised issues that are important to his ward pushing for the opening of the footpath across Black Bridge, the introduction of beavers to alleviate the flood risk to Lydbrook and questioning the lack of affordable housing provision in new housing developments.
