Result of by-election
Earlier this month a by-election was held for a Borough Council seat.
To be a borough councillor, you have to be either a local elector or live or work or own a property in the area. One of the councillors who represented Ruxley ward has moved out of the borough. He resigned from the council and this triggered a by-election.
The by-election was held on 15 February and the result was:
Alex Coley has duly been elected
Turnout was 23.38%
The council consists 38 seats. This result means the make-up of the Council is unchanged:
- 31 Residents association
- 4 Conservative
- 3 Labour
Local elections are held every four years to elect borough councillors to represent the 13 wards in Epsom & Ewell. The next elections will be held in May 2019.
