Labour retain control of Nottingham City Council

Nottingham Post cover page photo capturing the moment Labour won Park ward, that had seemed designed so that Labour couldn’t win it.

Labour won 50 seats.
Nottingham City Council has published the list of 2019-2023 councillors.
The new Castle ward was unpredictable. The safe Conservative Wollaton West ward was all Labour this time, and resoundingly so.
The Conservatives therefore only returned 2 Councillors from the Clifton West ward which seemed designed for them.
But losing the Clifton Estate for the first time in its history will trouble us.

Most of the new Labour Group; the Meadows contingent were mainly ill and had to go home early; I’d worn myself out taking photos and combined with the after effects of a cold, was way too miserable. La de da.

20 of the new Labour Councillors are new.

27 are the 50 Labour Councillors are women, the first time women have been in the majority.
The council has a majority too, with one woman councillor from the Independents.
