Elections to Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council were held on 5 May 2011. The whole borough council (53 members) were up for election. Parish council elections and the national Alternative Vote referendum were held on the same day.

Overall results[edit]

The Conservatives tightened their grip on the Council by gaining three seats from the Liberal Democrats. They however lost one seat to Labour who now had a presence on the Council after a four-year absence. The leader of the Liberal Democrats David Thornewell lost his seat after 37 years on the Council. Thornewell had been a member of the Council since its creation in 1974.[1] He had also been a member of Malling Rural District Council, one of the Council's predecessors, between 1972 and 1974.
