Ashtead - Local Government

Due to recent changes brought about by the LibDem administration, in May 2023, the election process changed

District Council Ward structure in Ashtead

Ashtead currently has six Council seats, among 39 at Mole Valley District Council (MVDC). All six seats are occupied by Ashtead Independents.


  • The six seats are spread across two wards - Ashtead Park and Ashtead Lanes & Common - each ward having three seats each.

  • The three district wards together form the Ashtead Division for Surrey County Council to which one councillor is elected.

  • Geographically, the division between the two wards can be seen in the map below. ​​

  • Due to recent changes brought about by the LibDem administration, in May 2023, electors voted for two councillors for four years; two for three years; and two for one year according to the number of votes received.

  • The map below reflects the number of years that councillors were elected in May 2023.


  • There will continue to be elections in three out of every four years.


  • There is no change to the County Council Ashtead Ward boundary or election timetable.


See: Three Wards to become two for the background to these changes.
