Ward results[edit]

The number in brackets after the ward name is the number of councillors to be elected. An asterisk after the name (*) indicate the candidate was elected. Candidates are list in order of number of votes. 'Turnout' indicates the number of ballot papers issued followed by the percentage of registered voters voting. Votes could be cast for 1 up to 3 candidates in some cases, though voting for more than the specified number would disqualify the ballot paper. Several wards were changed in 2011 from those in 2007 - it is therefore not possible to indicate all gains and holds in some cases.
