Background

The last election in 2010 saw Labour winning a majority with 40 seats, compared to 24 for the Conservatives and 5 for the Liberal Democrats. However, in the intervening period between elections, some councilors changed allegiance. The Labour Party was led locally by Julian Bell, a Councillor since 2002, while the Conservative Party was led by David Milican, Councillor from 1990 to 1994 and then from 2006 to 2014 and the Liberal Democrats were led by Gary Malcom, who had been a Councillor since 2002.

Election Result

Labour maintained control with an increased majority, winning 53 out of 69 seats on the council. The Conservatives fell to 12 seats, while the Liberal Democrats took the remaining four seats.

Following the result, Conservative leader David Milican resigned, and local leadership was taken up by Gregory Stafford, Councillor since 2007.
