Election Results

Total votes counted so far: 109305 of which 9.83% are Green.
Nationally, Greens have gained 63 seats so far.
Only 4 Unitary (County) seats left to declare.  Town and parish results are expected throughout the day on Sunday.

Having a Green in the room provides a voice for the environment, the climate and social justice, areas we believe other parties are failing to match their rhetoric with meaningful action.

As we come out of this pandemic, people realise the world has changed. We do not want to go back to the way things were. The pandemic has put a spotlight on the rampant inequality in our society and the destructive relationship we have had with our environment.

The Greens are the only party looking forward to how we create a better future by pledging to build a Green Recovery for every community across the country.

The main two parties fail to grasp the need for positive transformation coming out of the pandemic. Instead, Green councillors and activists across the country are working with local communities and picking up the slack to ensure a Green Recovery for all.

A Green in the room makes change happenHaving a Green in the room provides a voice for the environment, the climate and social justice, areas we believe other parties are failing to match their rhetoric with meaningful action.

At the last local elections, the Green Party doubled our number of councillors, and with increased focus on the need for urgent action on climate and a Green Recovery we are expecting to do even better this year.


Every day we are building on the "Green Surge" that has seen our local membership quadrupled in recent years. We now have 6 seats on Oswestry Town Council, a Shropshire Council and Town Council seat in Shrewsbury and a seat on Church Stretton Town Council. We can and will win elections because we are the only party with a rational alternative to Westminster politics.

We may be one of the smaller parties, but we regularly "punch above our weight" and having a "green in the room" has made a significant difference in many areas.

Nationally, we stand for:

Locally, we pledge to:

  • Listen to you and keep you informed by newsletters and surgeries.
  • Campaign against your money being wasted on ill-conceived projects such as the North West "Relief" Road.
  • Speak up against cuts in services that affect Shropshire residents.
  • Work in partnership to protect our heritage and improve our town centres.
  • Do our best to make Shropshire Council and the Town Councils more open and transparent so you know what is being done with your hard-earned money.
