City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council election, 2015

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2015 City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council election took place on 7 May 2015.[1] This was on the same day as other local elections and a general election. One councillor was elected in each ward for a four-year term so the councillors elected in 2015 last stood for election in 2011. Each ward is represented by three councillors, the election of which is staggered, so only one third of the councillors were elected in this election. Labour retained overall control of the council.
