SBC Councillors are divided into Wards, which usually have 3 Councillors (except Chiseldon & Lawn and Ridgeway). These are the Labour Councillors for each Ward. In May 2023 we had a fantastic set of elections and took control of the Council, with 33 of the 57 Councillors, so Labour are running Swindon Borough Council for the first time in 20 years!  Where a Councillor holds a Cabinet or other role that is shown in brackets.
