Labour sweeps back to power in Derbyshire PDF Print E-mail


On a successful day for Labour across England, an end was brought to the Tory administration at Derbyshire County Council on 2 May. In North East Derbyshire Labour our candidates were victorious in six of the eight seats  based on new boundaries.

Congratulations to our winning candidates and new County Councillors. They are:

Clay Cross North: Brian Wright

Clay Cross South: Kevin Gillott,

Dronfield East: Janet Hill,

Eckington & Killamarsh: Brian Ridgeway and Diane Charles

Sutton: Julie Hill.

Added to gains made across the County, Labour now has 43 seats with the Tories down to 18 and, their coalition partners, the Lib Dems reduced to 3. UKIP failed to make a breakthrough anywhere in Derbyshire.
