Greens move from fourth to first place in Hastings  

The Green Party has gone from the fourth largest party on Hastings Borough Council to the largest party. Greens won 8 seats and retained 1 of 16 seats up for election (38% of the vote), up from just 1 seat when the seats were contested in 2021. This leaves Greens with 12 councillors, Labour with 8, Independents 7 and Conservatives 5.  

Responding, Green Party Co-Leader Carla Denyer said, 

“This is an absolutely spectacular result for Hastings going from the 4th largest party on the council to the largest.  

“We’ve gone from 4 to 12 seats and it stands as a tribute to the fact that when people elect Greens, and see how hard we work for them, they want to elect more.  

“Green Councillors are already in power in Hastings and will now be able to deliver more with a stronger and bigger Green group. As with dozens of other councils where Greens are in administration they can deliver real change for their residents.”  

At the time of writing (18:30) Greens have gained 38 councillors and are on track for a record number of councillors by the end of the weekend of around 800 on over 170 councils. Greens have also made breakthroughs onto new councils including: Newcastle, Sefton in Merseyside, Redditch in Worcestershire, Bolton and in South Norfolk where the Green gain toppled the Council control from Conservative to No Overall Control.
