We work with the Elmbridge Residents Group, and in coalition with the Liberal Democrats to form recent administrations at Elmbridge Borough Council.




The 2016 Elmbridge Borough Council elections were held following a boundary review which saw Hinchley and Weston Green combined into a new ward with three councillors.  Thanks to the support of voters in the new ward, the three residents' candidates, Tannia Shipley, Nigel Haig-Brown and Janet Turner were elected with large majorities.


From 2018 onwards, Council elections returned to the normal pattern of 'election by thirds'. Nigel Haig-Brown was re-elected in that year, and Janet Turner in 2019.  The 2020 election was cancelled because of the covid pandemic, but in 2021 Gill Coates was elected in place of Tannia Shipley.  Nigel Haig-Brown stood down in 2022, to be replaced by James Crawshaw.


In the 2019 election, the Conservatives lost their majority, since when Residents and Liberal Democrats have shared control of the council.
