Elmbridge Borough Council elections 2023


At the election on 5th May, Janet Turner was returned for another term as one of
our councillors, with a large majority.
The full result was:
TURNER Janet Rita (Hinchley Wood & Weston Green Residents) 1603
AMBEKAR Liz (Liberal Democrats) 518
KIM Caroline Ewha (Conservative) 384
HEADLAND Rachelle Claire (Labour) 84
We thank residents for their continued support for Residents Association
candidates in the elections to Elmbridge Borough Council.
In other wards, the Liberal Democrats made significant gains and are now the
largest party on the Council. As such, they have formed an administration with
Residents Association support.




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.


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