Political Structure

Blaby District Council has 39 councillors (known as 'members') who represent 18 wards - of which a number are multi member wards

Elections are held every four years, the last being May 2019.

Blaby District Council is therefore controlled by the majority group - The Conservative Group.

The 39 seats are currently broken down like this:

39 Councillors in total

  • 25 - The Conservative Party
  • 6 - Liberal Democrats
  • 6 - The Labour Party
  • 1 - Independent
  • 1 - Green Party

Once elected, the Councillors in turn elect their own Leader, who then appoints a Cabinet Executive. The Cabinet Executive is at the heart of the day-to-day decision making process. Major items of policy, such as the setting of the Council’s budget, are decided by all Councillors at the Full Council meeting.
