The Green Party are celebrating Toby Mallinson winning in Hillsborough so we now have all 3 Councillors in Hillsborough Ward. Unfortunately we lost to Labour in Nether Edge, so the overall balance remains the same. All the Green Councillors defending their seats were re-elected with reasonable majorities. Labour needed to gain 3 seats to take overall control of the Council, but they have failed to do this.
Throughout the city Greens polled 24923 votes, which was 19.5% of the valid votes cast. Our total vote is half of the Labour vote, but due to the unfair electoral system they elected 16 Councillors while we elected 4.
