In 2017, as part of what was generally around the country a good election for the Conservative Party, the result in Kent was:
Conservative 67 Liberal Democrat 7 Labour 5 Green Party 1 Swanscombe & Greenhithe Residents' Association 1
Current political composition is:
Conservative 65 Liberal Democrat 7 Labour 5 Green Party 1 Swanscombe & Greenhithe Residents' Association 1 Independent 1 Swale Independent Alliance 1
The changes since May 2017 were a by-election gain from the Conservatives by Swale Independent Alliance in Sittingbourne North in May 2019 and Paul Messenger in Ramsgate left the Conservative Group and now sits as an Independent following publicity of an allegedly Islamophobic Facebook post from some years ago.
