Medway Council has 55 elected councillors across 22 wards
The current makeup of the council is:
Conservative – 37
Labour – 15
UKIP – 1
Independent – 2
Councillors by Ward (via Medway Council)
- 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.
A lot of work goes into keeping The Political Medway running. We are a volunteer based, non-profit project, and yet we are still trying to produce regular content, cover council meetings as they happen, as well as provide as much information about elections as possible. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a small donation – one-off or monthly – via Ko-fi to help us cover our costs and keep this ridiculous project going.
