Huntingdonshire District Council

The District Council has 52 councillors who represent 29 wards. Eighteen of these councillors, representing 10 wards are elected within the boundaries of North-West Cambridgeshire. Of these 18 councillors, one is a Liberal Democrats: Mike Baker who represents the Ellington ward.

The overall composition of the council is:

  • Conservatives: 41
  • Liberal Democrats: 8, one from North-West Cambridgeshire
  • UKIP: 2, both from North-West Cambridgeshire
  • Independents: 1

The Liberal Democrats form the main opposition group within the council. This group is led by Councillor Peter Downes who represents Brampton. The deputy leader is Mike Shellens who represents Huntingdon East.

In the 2011 local elections, Mike Baker comfortably held his seat in Ellington. He was the only councillor up for re-election. In 2012 we failed to make progress in other wards but we hope to change that in 2014.
