About Tewkesbury

Tewkesbury constituency

Tewkesbury Constituency covers most of Tewkesbury Borough (except the area west of the Severn) and parts of Cheltenham Borough and Gloucester City.

Essentially the main centres are Tewkesbury town, Ashchurch and Northway, Bishops Cleeve, Winchcombe, Churchdown, Brockworth, Prestbury and Swindon Village and Longlevens.

There are currently 4 Liberal Democrat Councillors at Borough level (2 on Tewkesbury Borough and 2 on Cheltenham Borough). Wards represented by Liberal Democrats cover Bishop's Cleeve, Churchdown, and Swindon Village. Councillors have been fighting hard to protect the Green Belt which is threatened in the Joint Core Strategy being developed by Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury Councils.

We also have 2 County Councillors within the Constituency: 1 in Churchdown and 1 covering the Swindon Village area. The Liberal Democrats are the major Tewkesbury Constituency GE result 2010opposition Group on the County Council, having increased their proportion of seats in the 2013 elections, the Conservatives being in minority control.

In the General Election of 2010 the result showed how strong the Liberal Democrat potential in the constituency is for the future: 19,162 electors supported us and Alistair Cameron increase the vote by over 7%. Clearly 2015 was disappointing, but membership has risen considerably since and we are fighting back! Do join us!

There are no Labour councillors at District or County level within the Constituency, and the Liberal Democrats continue to provide the main opposition to the Conservatives in the area; indeed in the local elections of 2011 we scored over 30% of the vote in the contested seats.
