The Parliamentary Constituency of East Surrey has changed its borders several times over the decades. It currently covers the whole of Tandridge District and part of Reigate & Banstead Borough, mostly Horley wards.

Council Chamber

Tandridge District Council's Strategy and Resources meeting conducted a debate concerning the labelling of councillors as being part of political group who don’t want to be called a group.

Some independent councillors in the south of the Tandridge district do not want the public to know that they have joined a political group at Tandridge council. Political groups enable councillors to secure positions on committees.


An open letter from Tandridge Liberal Democrats to the other parties setting out their programme for the coming Civic Year after the election led to no overall control.
