6 May 2023
Today is a historic day for the Green Party. We started the day with 537 councillors - we now have 737! This is the largest number of councillors the Green Party have ever held.
We've seen a net gain of 200 seats, 13 local councils have had breakthroughs, and now we're the largest party in these councils across the country: Bristol, East Suffolk, East Hertfordshire, Babergh, Lewes, Folkestone and Hythe, Stroud, Forest of Dean and Warwick. And in Mid Suffolk not only are we the largest party, but we're the first Green majority led council.
These results show a Conservative government in meltdown, and Greens making significant and substantial gains over the full four year election cycle. Greens have once again shown that they are the ones offering a different kind of politics, and we know all our new Green councillors are excited to get started representing their communities.
Why not join the Green Party now and help make a difference .
