Nottinghamshire County Council election 2017 results

5 May 2017

The Conservative Party is now the largest group at Nottinghamshire County Council following elections held on Thursday 4 May 2017, winning 31 of 66 seats.

This is short of the 34 seats required for a majority, so the County Council remains in no overall control.

The overall results and those for all individual divisions are available to view here.

The new composition of the County Council is (change from number of seats prior to the election):

  • Conservative - 31 seats (+10)
  • Labour - 23 seats (-9)
  • Ashfield Independents – 5 seats (+1)
  • Mansfield Independent Forum - 4 seats (+2)
  • Liberal Democrat  - 1 seat (-4)
  • Selston Area Independents - 1 seat (no change)
  • Independent - 1 seat (-2) 

The total number of County Council seats has reduced from 67 to 66, following a boundary review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. The review has meant that most of the 56 divisions have changed in name, size or both.

The countywide turnout was 36.47%, an increase of 3% on the 2013 County Council election. The largest turnout was in the Southwell division (48.9%) and the lowest was in Worksop East division (26.4%).

All the newly elected and re-elected councillors will officially assume office on Monday 8 May.

The first meeting of the new County Council, the Annual General Meeting (AGM), will take place on 25 May 2017. The election of a County Council Chairman, Committee Chairs and the membership of committees will be set at the AGM.
