Hertfordshire County Council


Hertfordshire County Council

Hertfordshire County Council is the upper-tier local authority for the non-metropolitan county of Hertfordshire, in England, the United Kingdom. It currently consists of 77 councillors, and is controlled by the Conservative Party, which has 46 councillors, versus 16 Labour councillors, 14 Liberal Democrats, and one Green.

Composition

Elections are held every four years, interspersed by three years of elections to the ten district councils in the county.

Conservative candidates represent most of the county's rural areas, and almost all of eastern Hertfordshire is Conservative-controlled. St Albans and Watford are disproportionately represented by Liberal Democrats, whilst Hemel Hempstead and Stevenage are Labour's strongest areas. All seats in the districts of Broxbourne and East Hertfordshire are represented by Conservative councillors.
