About Us

In 2010, due to wards on Swindon Borough Council being of varying size, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England ordered a review of the make-up of the council. The review that came back suggested a reduction in councillors from 59 to 57 and new ward boundaries across the borough.

In the North of Swindon the old ‘Abbey Meads’ ward was split in two creating ‘St Andrews’ and ‘Priory Vale’; with all new wards to be contested in all-out elections on 3rd May 2012.

Here are the results from the elections:

Electorate: 8,618 Turnout: 23%
