Stroud District Council election results

First published in News by

WHILE the Liberal Democrats had a disappointing result in the General Election, in the Stroud district elections the party managed to turn the tables and become joint opposition party alongside Labour.

In an election where most seats stayed the same the Lib Dems managed to pick up two new seats. Brian Marsh took the seat in Dursley from former Conservative candidate Dr Timothy Frankau and in Wotton-under-Edge new Lib Dem candidate Alan O'Connor took the seat from Conservative Chris Routledge who stood down this year.

This leaves the council with a political make-up of 30 Conservatives, seven Labour, seven Lib Dem, six Greens and one independent.
