For the first time ever the Liberal Democrats now run South Hams District Council.
We had a tremendous result, with 19 Lib Dem councillors elected, out of a total of 31. The Greens now have 3, the Independents one, and the Conservatives have 7.
South Hams has been run by the Conservatives for most of its existence, with a few years of sharing power with independent councillors. So this is a historic moment.
Lib Dem group leader and prospective Council Leader Julian Brazil has promised to run an inclusive council, where everyone will be heard, in order to represent all the residents of the South Hams.
We are very much looking forward to implementing our policies which have been spelled out in our election manifesto here.
