Councillors – the basics
- We have 51 councillors who represent the city's 17 electoral wards.
- There are three councillors for each electoral ward.
- Elections are held three out of every four years: one councillor from each ward goes through an election process over the three years.
- Councillors are elected to represent residents of their electoral ward, but also have a duty to represent the whole city.
In the Local Council Elections 2012, Derby residents elected:
- 28 Labour councillors
- 14 Conservative councillors
- 9 Liberal Democrat councillors.
As Labour received over the minimum 26 seats, they will be taking control of the Council from 23rd May 2012 and will be known as 'the administration'. Find out more about the Council Cabinet.
All councillors have to follow a Code of Conduct that they must sign. This makes them accountable to the Standards Committee, which investigates breaches of the Code.
