From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The second election to Dyfed County Council was held in May 1985.[1] It was preceded by the 1981 election and followed by the 1989 election. Once again, there were a number of unopposed returns, particularly in rural parts of the county.[2]

Overview

The Independents remained the largest party but lost ground to Labour.
