Council elections

The turnout in Alexandra Park Ward for this election has once again been the highest in the borough, which is an interesting comment on our engagement with local issues.

Alexandra was always the smallest ward in the borough (in population), which is one reason why it was proposed to abolish the ward. The boundary change has reduced the electorate by very little, and presumably has had no great effect on the election result. We now once more have a mixed-party representation after 2 sitting councillors stepped down following the boundary change to a 2-councillor ward. Last time we had a party mix it was also after sitting councillors stepped down.

After this election, mixed-party representation is now the majority in wards on this side of the borough. Labour has increased its majority on the council as a whole to 50-7.

So welcome to Sarah Elliott our new councillor, and we look forward to hearing from her on the various issues of concern in the ward in due course.
