Residents' and Independent Councillors join together in the Elmbridge Residents Group. We represent you who live and work here in Elmbridge - the parent, the commuter, the pensioner. We now hold twenty of the sixty seats on the Council. We had an excellent track record in administering the Borough from 1992 - 2006.
What we stand for
You deserve better
Time and again the small caucuses of politicians who now run Elmbridge and Surrey take decisions based on political dogma not practical common sense. They don't consult you first. Time and again residents have to make great efforts to get those policies changed to be sensible. Often we succeed. But this is a poor way to manage local government. Elmbridge residents are intelligent, educated, adult and responsible. You should be properly consulted before decisions are taken that affect you, and for which you pay. Decisions should fairly reflect that consultation - not just tick a box.Download the 2012 brochure entire (350kb pdf file)
