- Medway Council had 80 councillors upon it’s formation in 1998, but this was subsequently reduced to 55 from the 2003 elections onwards.
- The current number is reached following changes since the 2015 local elections. 1 councillor resigned from the UKIP group and decided to sit as an independent instead.
Here we go again: The Political Medway is a volunteer run website attempting to cover politics in Medway from an independent point of view. As we approach yet another General Election, there’s lots of things we’d like to cover, but we only have a finite amount of resources. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi page. The more money raised, the more coverage we can provide, so every little bit really does help. Thanks.
