Meet your Conservative Councillors and Candidates:
Working together for Selsey
The Selsey Conservative team are working together to sustain a strong local business environment, to sustain employment, build a closer community, maintain our unique heritage and protect our coastline.
Welcome the Selsey Branch of the Chichester Conservative Association
Incorporating Selsey South, Sidlesham with Selsey North and Selsey County Council ward
Selsey is part of the Chichester Constituency and is right on the southernmost tip of the Manhood Peninsula.
The population is around 12,000, rising to well over 30,000 in the summer months, and the tourist industry is crucial to the local economy.
Equally important to the local economy is the local fishing industry, and Selsey is renowned for the ‘Selsey Crab’.
It suffers with poor road access to Chichester but has a bustling local business community and residents who are passionate about the preservation of their unique local heritage.
Why Vote for Us?
Local government is about what is best for Selsey and Sidlesham, and not necessarily Central Government and we only support the party line if it is in our local best interests. We have no influence on national politics or government policy, although we appreciate these are things that people are concerned about.
