Totnes by-election, 2016
Liberal Democrats gain from Labour
A by-election was held for the Totnes ward of South Hams District Council on 27 July 2016 following the resignation of Labour Cllr David Horsburgh due to work and family commitments. Horsburgh had been the only Labour member of the council and Labour did not field a candidate to defend the seat, instead supporting the 18-year-old Independent candidate Alex Mockridge.
John Birch gained the seat for the Liberal Democrats.
A previous by-election for Totnes was held on 8 October 2015, covered here.
