Congratulations to our newest Cllr Tammy Palmer! It was a driven campaign and we know you're already being a fantastic representative for Duryard & St James' communities.

LAB 619 (-4.1%)
GRN 270 (+1.2%)
CON 184 (-0.2%)
LDM 891 (+3.1%)
Lib Dem GAIN from Labour
(% changes with 2023)

This is the first time since the 2016 council boundary changes that an Exeter ward, Duryard & St James, has elected 3/3 Lib Dem representation!

The result has helped reduced Labour's dominance on the council to 24 out of 39 Cllrs. Whilst our Progressive Group, the official opposition, is up to 11 Cllrs.

Despite a valiant effort, we were unable to repeat last year's success of winning a seat in St Thomas. It was a challenging campaign as Labour threw a lot at the seat and one of their former councillors stood as well, but well done to Vanessa and team for putting in a strong campaign.

Our Police & Crime Commissioner candidate, Steve Lodge, also put in a strong campaign in the time available. As a result of the Conservatives regressing the voting system, they were elected to the role for another 4 years on 38% of the vote. The result for just the Exeter Local Authority area was: CON 9,700, LAB 15,742, LDM 5,888.
