Lokaal Belang Doetinchem (LBD) as a party, directs itself exclusively at inhabitants’ wellbeing in Doetinchem, Gaanderen and (Nieuw) Wehl, this in contrary to other national parties.

We treat the people in our municipality respectfully and with integrity. We want to create a wholesome environment where both youth and elderly enjoy living, going to work and school and can recreate. Lokaal Belang Doetinchem puts in maximum effort to achieve that, with a financially stable policy where expenses (i.e. woz value) do not overrun citizens.
