Did you know? A Lib Dem is leader of Spelthorne Council

Spelthorne Liberal Democrats Council Leader is a Lib Dem ()

First ever non-Conservative LEADS Spelthorne Council

History was made at the end of May this year when Councillor Lawrence Nichols was elected Liberal Democrat Leader of the Council. He became the first non-Conservative to hold this position since the Authority was created in 1974.
Lawrence heads a multi-Party grouping formed to radically alter how Spelthorne is run. He is supported by Independent Councillor Jo Sexton as his Deputy. This change coincides with the introduction of a Committee based system which will bring greater accountability, participation and transparency to the Council's affairs after the previous Strong Leader model was discredited.
Commenting after his election Lawrence said "It is truly an honour to have been elected. I am determined to do everything I can to serve all our residents and businesses, as we face the many challenges coming out of lockdown and the steps back to normality".
