43 seats needed for a majority
Map showing the results of the 2014 Sheffield City Council elections.
There were 29 seats up for election, one third of the council with a double vacancy in Walkley.
With a Labour majority of 36 and defending 19 seats, it was almost mathematically impossible for Labour to lose control of the council, as Labour would have needed to lose all 19 of those 19 seats to lose control. Even then Labour would still have been the largest party.
