District Council Election Results

Burton Green is part of a brand new ward known as Kenilworth Abbey and Arden.

This ward covers Kenilworth Castle, Burton Green, Honiley, Rowington, Baddesley Clinton, Packwood and Lapworth (roughly the area of the old Forest of Arden).

The complete results for the May 2nd local election are shown below.

The 3 Councillors elected were John Cook (Conservative), Richard Hales (Conservative) and George Illingworth (Conservative).

The experience of Burton Green (3 Conservatives elected) was not typical of Kenilworth, or Warwickshire as a whole.

On Kenilworth town council, 12 incumbent Councillors lost their seats, including Mayor Mike Hitchins; only 4 incumbent Councillors survived.

The Green Party made huge gains and now holds the most seats on Kenilworth Town Council (8 seats) with Liberal Democrats (7 seats) and the Conservatives (2 seats).

The Conservatives have also lost control of Warwick District Council including council leader Andrew Mobbs who lost his seat. In contrast there were gains for the Greens and Lib Dems who will now go forward as part of a rainbow coalition as no party has overall control.

These are the complete results for Kenilworth Abbey and Arden:
