New make up of Tandridge District Council

Tandridge District Council met on Tuesday night for the first time since the 2 May elections. No party now has overall control of the Council.

OLRG's 7 District Councillors have joined with 6 Independents from around the District to form a group of 13 called the Independents and OLRG Alliance.

There are 11 Liberal Democrats.
