The 2015 Runnymede Borough Council election took place on 7 May 2015 to elect one third of members to Runnymede Borough Council in England. The election coincided with other local elections held simultaneously with a General Election and resulted in increased turnout compared to the election four years before. In Addlestone North a by-election added to seats vacant. All currently drawn wards of the United Kingdom in this area are three-member, with the different members' seats contested three years out of four.[1]

Results

Conservatives gained a seat, adding to councillors within the group with overall control of the Council.[2][3]
