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.
Following the Local Council Elections 2021 there is no one party with an overall majority of seats. The Conservative group currently hold minority administration, after Councillor Chris Poulter was first elected as Leader of the Council and appointed a Cabinet at the Annual General Meeting of the authority on 23 May 2018.
The breakdown of seats is as follows:
- Conservative: 21 seats
- Labour: 13 seats
- Liberal Democrats: 8 seats
- Reform Derby Group: 6 seats
- Independent: 3 seats
