Highbridge & Burnham-on-Sea Town Council

Lid Dem Burnham

In May 2022, Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea Lib Dems became the biggest party on the town council, winning 9 out of 18 seats since 1999. In 2023, a devoted councilor resigned due to ill health, we lost the by-election with our community-driven candidate Laura Chalmers by 2 votes to a conservative who was not successful in keeping his seat during the 2022 election.

  • 2019 Town council election, 7 seats, with one seat lost by 1 vote.
  • 2015 Town council election, 5 seats

Councillor Lesley Millard has been leading the council as both Mayor and Chairman, by supporting the community and young people to have a voice, driven by her dedicated career in education.

The town council continues to work hard for you, working on community-enriched projects for the residents and visitors to enjoy. Their town council website has a Mayor's update on the home page and a notice board section.
