Political Structure

Blaby District Council has 36 councillors (known as 'members') who represent 17 wards - of which a number are multi-member wards.

Elections are held every four years, the last being May 2023.

Blaby District Council is therefore controlled by the majority group - The Conservative Group and the Leader of the Council is Cllr. Terry Richardson.

The 36 seats are currently broken down like this:

  • 19 - Conservative 
  • 9 - Liberal Democrats
  • 6 - Labour 
  • 2 - Green 

Once elected the Councillors, in turn, elect their 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.
