As the Conservative party has lost overall control of Elmbridge the full council will have to come to a decision as to who should form the government of Elmbridge.

  1. Hi Andrew,
    so pleased to hear that you have been re-elected.
    Real surprise is that Conservatives do not have overall majority on Council.
    As leader of the Lib dems group you have some interesting decisions to make!!!

  2. We live in Walton but follow your input and wish we had such an inspired ward councillor.
    This result is a marvellous opportunity for the Council to take a more democratic and united approach under a new leader.
