The British currently occupy the most seats of foreign councilors on local Spain Councils according to data in a report released by the Ministry for Regional Policy.

The Ministry compiled the information after looking at the result of the elections of 2007, which included over 68,000 councilors that were elected to serve at approximately 8,000 Spanish Town Halls. Out of these there were 85 councilors that were born in other countries in the European Union and from these 43% of the councilors have British citizenship. In total, there are 37 Britons on the councils in Spain.

Following the UK in foreign councilors is Germany which is to be expected since the results show that the regions that have high foreign populations correlate to also offer the highest number of foreign councilors.
