The Labour Party governing group of councillors saw their majority reduced to one councillor, with one gained by a Conservative, keeping some areas of the authority having no representatives within the group with control of the council. Five of six seats held were retained by Labour candidates, keeping some areas with sole majority party representation. None of the unrepresented parties achieved a first or second place in any of the seats for which the election took place. Seats from two lower-population wards were without elections in 2015.[2][3][4]
