The intention is that each of the three villages now has significant control over its own budget and expenditures, which will be managed by its own group of councillors.
Electoral Commission rules mean that Bagshot has 6 councillors, Lightwater 7 councillors and Windlesham 5 councillors. This is based on the relative populations of the three villages.
Importantly, the village of Windlesham has now been electorally 're-united' and is represented by its own group of 5 councillors.
The existing office and centralised team continue to provide support to the councillors for each of the three villages and all three villages will still be able to benefit from economies of scale that can be found by contracting centrally for certain services.
