Broxtowe Borough Council elections

The Conservative party held overall control of the council from its foundation in 1973 until 1995 when the Labour party took control. Boundary changes took place for the 2003 election reducing the number of seats by five. The election saw Labour lose overall control of the council.[1] Since 2003 the council has been under no overall control with Labour and the Liberal Democrats sharing power.[2][3]

The last Borough/Parish elections were in May 2015.[4]
