Local Elections: Labour holds Bassetlaw District Council with bigger majority

Bassetlaw District Council will remain under Labour control for another four years.

The overall local election result was declared just after 6am on May 5 at the North Notts Community Arena.

The Labour group, now led by James Naish, won a total 38 seats out of a possible 48, compared to 37 in 2019.

Cllr Naish, who sits on the Sturton ward seat and was re-elected, was chosen as the new leader in September last year.

The Conservatives landed eight seats, up three, having made gains from the independents and Labour.

The independents lost two seats, with two independent councillors elected.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats lost the group’s only seat in East Retford West to Labour, despite having secured it from the group in 2019.
