South Lakeland District Council election battle

First published in Council election news

ALTHOUGH May 6 will be dominated by the General Election, the day is not just about national politics.

South Lakeland is one of the districts where local council seats are also being contested.

From its formation in 1974 until the 2006 elections, no one political party had been in overall control of the council.

However, in 2006 the Liberal Democrats gained the majority of seats.

The political balance is currently Lib Dem 36, Conservative 14 and Labour 1.
