South Staffordshire District Council headquarters in Codsall

There are 45 district council seats up for grabs when South Staffordshire residents go to the polls on May 2.

The district is usually a straightforward affair, with the Tories currently holding 43 of 49 seats, having received 53.3 per cent of the vote in 2015.

This election will see Council leader Brian Edwards lead the Conservatives 36 years since he was first elected.
