Spectacular gains for Lib Dems at 2023 Waverley and Guildford borough elections

Jubilant Waverley Lib Dems, including all the new boys and girls on the block.

And with the Liberal Democrats now running Guildford Borough Council for the first time – do we see a merger coming on?


As well as the 25 seats, the new council is now made up of 10 Conservatives, the second largest party, seven Residents for Guildford and Villages, the biggest losers in the election, three Guildford Greenbelt Group and three Labour. Paul Spooner The Leader of the Conservative Group, lost his seat, which was a massive blow to the local Conservative Association.

The Liberal Democrats’ win follows their coalition with R4GV since 2020.
