All council seats were up for election.

Overview

Boundary changes were introduced at this election. In the main, however, these resulted in the splitting of multi-member wards in urban areas into single-member wards. The Independents retained control of the authority although there was an increased number of party candidates. Most notably, the Conservative Party fielded a large slate of candidates for the first time. Three of these candidates were successful.

Unopposed Returns

There were compartaively few unopposed returns, partly as a result of the increasingly politicised nature of the election.
