LP structure

Kensington Constituency Labour Party (CLP or Kensington Labour) is the organisation that listens to, responds to and is ultimately accountable to Labour Party members in Kensington. We keep in close contact with Chelsea and Fulham CLP, which covers the five wards in the south of the borough that make up RB Kensington and Chelsea. C&F members often come to our meetings and speak at All Members’ Meetings (AMMs), though they are not allowed to vote – or to speak at nomination meetings.

At the beginning of 2015 we had 296 members; in August 2016 we had cc1500!

Kensington Labour holds monthly meetings which are open to all members and supporters; we have speakers on contemporary issues. Do contact us if you have a suggestion for a speaker. There are three local branches: North West, covering St. Helen’s, Notting Dale, Dalgarno and Norland wards; North East, covering Golborne, Colville and Pembridge wards; and South, covering the seven South Kensington wards. These branches also hold regular meetings to discuss local issues.

On national issues the local Party makes its views known through the Labour Party’s democratic structures. Kensington Labour was opposed to the war in Iraq and advocates the scrapping of Trident. It is affiliated to Labour CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament), Republic, Scientists for Labour, and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. We debate these issues regularly, and our affiliations are discussed and renewed at every AGM so let us know if you would like to put forward any new affiliation.

Membership is open to all residents of the Kensington constituency. Get in touch if you wish to become involved.

  1. Local member but have been utterly passive, I would like to become more actively involved. What’s the best way of doing so?
