Council votes to stay with current election system

Amber Valley Borough Council will not be changing its election cycle from holding Borough Council elections by thirds, to whole Council elections for all Councillors of the Borough. A majority of at least two-thirds of Members present and voting at the Full Council meeting on 2 March was necessary to achieve a change but this was not achieved on the night, as 23 members voted in favour of the change and 20 voted against.

The vote followed a 12-week consultation exercise that generated 22 letters/emails from individuals and organisations, nine of which were in favour of the change, seven wished to see things stay as they are and six did not express a preference.
