Newcastle Green candidates for the 2018 local elections

Local elections are fast approaching, and Newcastle Green Party is proud to announce that we will be standing 28 candidates across 23 of the city's wards.

On 3 May 2018 Newcastle residents will have the chance to choose their next councillors. Due to boundary changes all 78 seats on Newcastle City Council are up for re-election, and voters will have three votes to use.

A vote for one of our candidates is a vote for a big, bright and bold vision for the future.
