SNP biggest group in new Highland Council administration


The SNP have come to an agreement with the Lib Dems and Labour that will see them serve together on the administration for Highland Council.

The SNP will be the biggest group on the council with 22 councillors, the Lib Dems have 15 and Labour have eight.

Drew Hendry, Administration Leader and SNP Group Leader, said:

“The SNP looks forward to working in partnership with the Lib Dem and Labour councillors in the best interests of all the people in the Highland Council area.

“With this strong coalition I have no doubts the three groups can work well together – setting aside political differences – to deliver for The Highlands.

“Our groups’ policies along with the skillsets of the elected members shall make for a winning blend and I am confident we will deliver.”
