Press Release

11 October 2016

Fareham Councillor switches political group

Stubbington Councillor, Christopher Wood, resigned from UKIP on Monday 10 October and has joined the Conservative Group with immediate effect.

The political balance of the Council is now as follows:

Conservative                        25        80.6%

Liberal Democrat                   4         12.9%

(UKIP)                                    1         3.25%

(Independent)                        1         3.25%

Whilst there is a UKIP councillor a group cannot be formed by a single member and so for the purposes of the calculations of political proportionality for committee allocations, the UKIP councillor will be treated as an independent member.

The Council will be asked to review the allocation of committee seats in accordance with the new calculations at its meeting on 13 October.

Councillor Wood's Terms of Office are from 27 May 2014 – 5 May 2018. 

- Ends -
