Surrey Heath Borough Council - LibDems Page

Representation on the Council

In May 2019 we won 10 seats on the Surrey Heath Borough Council. As a result the Lib Dems became the secnd largest Party and reduced the Tory majority on the council to a single seat. Subsequent events have meant that the Tories have now lost their majority and, although they still lead the executive, some of the key committee chairmanships which hold that executive to account are now held by Liberal Democrats.

Our Represeantation on the Council now consists of the following Councillors listed in alphabetical order. Each list enry consists of Name, Ward represented, Contact Details, and Roles. Links to further information will provided shortly :
