It's been an important day for the council. Councillor Ian Hudspeth has been re-elected as the Leader of the council and has appointed a cabinet with some new faces!
A new Chairman and Vice Chairman have also been appointed. All the details and more below. 

Election results

Following the county council election of 4 May, no single political group had a majority (ie more than half) of the elected councillors. The Conservative group have been joined by two Independent councillors to form a Conservative Independent Alliance.
The chart below shows a summary of the results, and you can find a detailed breakdown on our website.
