The Parliamentary Constituency of East Surrey has changed its borders several times over the decades. It currently covers the whole of Tandridge District and part of Reigate & Banstead Borough, mostly Horley wards.
It has been decided by the local Liberal Democrat teams in these two local authority areas that they should be responsible for the areas falling within their council boundaries. For campaigning ouside of General Election periods this makes perfect sense, as most political activity relates to business to do with their local councils.
Instead of East Surrey Lib Dems looking after Tandridge and the Horley wards of Reigate and Banstead Borough, Reigate Lib Dems will now look after Horley along with the rest of Reigate and Banstead Council's area.
East Surrey Lib Dems, newly named Tandridge Liberal Democrats, will look after just the 20 wards falling within Tandridge District Council's area.
Appointments of Parliamentary Candidates will be a decision between members of the two local parties living within the constituency. Campaigning for General Elections will be led by Tandridge Lib Dems, as the largest part of the constituency falls in their area, with the cooperation of Reigate Lib Dems.
