Results of the local elections

We have 8 people elected to serve in 10 parish /town council seats in Dover District.

THANK YOU to everyone who voted for our candidates and / or who helped with our campaigns. We went to celebrate with the 1300 year old yew tree at Ringwould.

We promise to ACT for the long-term protection of people, planet, animals and wildlife (and persuade other councillors to do the same).

These are the first Green Party seats ever won in the Dover District. The closest we came to a District Council seat was Eastry Rural that we missed by 5 votes (after recount). If we’d had more than 4 people leafletting and ¬£60 to spend in that ward on leaflets we could have taken the seat of the Conservative incumbant.

The seats and councillors won

  • Ringwould w/ Kingsdown PC – elected unopposed Mike Eddy
  • Walmer Parish Council – elected unopposed John Lonsdale and Dan Symons – elected Mike Eddy
  • Dover Town Council – elected Beccy Sawbridge and Jackie Garnett
  • Deal Town Council – elected Christine Oliver, Simon Phillips, Mike Eddy and Anne Farrington

Of the 15 district seats won in Kent, 11 were taken from Conservatives 4 were taken from UKIP.
