How we operate at
Cheshire West and Chester Council


At Cheshire West and Chester Council, Andrew Dawson and Lynn Riley are members of the Conservative Group.


The Council is currently controlled by the Labour Party. The Conservative Party is hoping to gain majority control of the Council in the next local elections, on 2nd May 2019. In the previous election, the Labour Party won the majority on the Council by one seat. With a majority on the Council, the Conservative Party would be able to enact its own policies in Cheshire West and Chester. The Conservative Group is the main opposition to the Labour Party in the Council.
