The 2011 Allerdale Borough Council election took place on 5 May 2011 to elect members of Allerdale Borough Council in Cumbria, England. The whole council was up for election and the council stayed under no overall control.[1]

Results[edit]

The results saw the Labour party make 6 gains to win exactly half of the 56 seats on the council, 1 short of a majority.[2] Labour gains included the former leader of the council, Mark Fryer, who took Stainburn ward from the Conservatives by 2 votes.[2] The Conservatives lost 5 seats to have 12 councillors, including losses in All Saints Cockermouth and Broughton St Bridgets.[2] 16 independents were elected, including gains in Broughton St Bridgets and Netherhall Maryport.[2] No other party won any seats on council, with the Liberal Democrats losing 2 seats in Harrington Workington as the party was wiped out.[2] Overall turnout in the election was 46.19%.[3]

Following the election Labour said it intended to take control of the council as a minority administration replacing the previous alliance between the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and 7 independents.[3]
