Wyre Forest Council election results in full as Conservatives buck national trend and take control

Conservatives took control of Wyre Forest, succeeding in contrast to their party's performance nationally.

Last updated

All 33 seats were up for grabs at the council, which was under no overall control before the election.

Before the vote, the Conservatives were the largest party with 14 seats, while Independent Health Concern held eight. Independents held another five, while Labour had two and the Green party held one.

The Conservatives gained full control of the council, taking 20 seats of the 33 available.

It means the council is now made up of 20 Conservative councillors, six independents, four Labour, two Liberal Democrats and a single Green Party representative.

The turnout was a little over a quarter, 28.29 per cent.
