Broxtowe: Local Election Results 2023

A former Conservative group leader said he was “disappointed” to be ousted from Broxtowe Borough Council after 20 years after a jaw-dropping tie-break vote.

The Labour group gained 26 seats out of a possible 44 in the May 4 election, compared to the 14 seats it held after 2019.

The Conservative Party gained 10 seats while five Liberal Democrats and three Independents were also elected.

Councillor Richard Jackson previously represented Attenborough and Chilwell East as a Conservative councillor.

But this year he stood for Toton and Chilwell Meadows – eventually losing his seat after gaining the same number of votes – 834 – as fellow Conservative Cllr Halimah Khaled.

Ruth Hyde, Chief Executive at Broxtowe Borough Council, drew Halimah Khaled’s name out of a hat in a tense moment at the election count today.

Mr Jackson said: “I am disappointed personally but it’s also about colleagues locally and across the country.

“There are some very hard-working councillors across the country who deserved another term in office who would’ve continued to do a great job.

“They’ve been swept aside by a national tide.

“I’ve been on Broxtowe Borough Council for 20 years and enjoyed every minute of it, it has been a privilege to present people. I shall miss it but we will regroup and look forward to the next set of elections.

“There’s always an election not too far away. The thing for me is to let the dust settle and work out how we move forward from here.

“The scale is probably more than we expected today but it was clearly always going to be difficult for us.”

Milan Radulovic MBE (Lab), who was first elected in 1986, said he was “elated” at the result.

He said: “It’s been four years of working in the most extreme circumstances with the Covid pandemic, the cost of living crisis, fuel poverty and the horrendous rise in homelessness.

“We’ve positively tackled these issues to bring them to the forefront of people’s attention to try and alleviate the situation.

“I am immensely proud of all we have achieved.”

Labour gained three seats in Kimberley, which was previously run by two Conservatives and one Independent councillor.

Labour candidates Chris Carr, Andy Cooper and William Mee won seats – meaning that Shane Easom, the councillor for Kimberley was ousted.

And in Attenborough & Chilwell East, Labour councillors gained three seats from the Conservatives – meaning that Eric Kerry and Trish Roberts-Thompson lost their seats.

But Darren Henry, Conservative MP for Broxtowe said he wasn’t concerned ahead of the next General Election.

He added it was “very disappointing to see hard-working Conservative candidates not being elected”.

He said: “Hopefully those councillors won’t give up and will come back to fight for it another day.

“At the end of the day, the Prime Minister and the Conservative Party are working really hard to make sure we tackle the cost of living crisis, deal with the small boats and add some investment into long forgotten towns.

“It’s been disappointing in terms of results for the Conservative party across the country.”
