LGA Independent

The Independent Group represents councillors in England and Wales who are Independent, Green or from smaller parties. We provide our members with a voice at the national level and work within the cross-party Local Government Association (LGA) to ensure that the values and interests of our members are represented.


General Election 2019

Well done to all LGA Independent Group members who stood in the General Election today.

There were some great results, with members achieving significant vote shares and reducing party majorities.

You can find out how your Independent and smaller party candidates did here.

We also congratulate Ben Lake, Liz Saville-Roberts, Hywel Williams, Jonathan Edwards and Caroline Lucas for their re-election and look forward to working with them in support of local government.
