North West Leicestershire District Council election, 1995

Voting

Elections to North West Leicestershire District Council took place on 4 May 1995, with the previous election having taken place in 1991 and with the next held in 1999. The election took place across all 22 electoral wards and a total of 40 councillors were elected. Labour tightened its grip on the council by capturing nine seats from the Conservatives. Former Conservative rural stronghlds such as Appleby, Breedon, Kegworth and Ravenstone fell to Labour, who also came away with all but one seat in Ashby. The result was that Labour held 35, or 87.5% of the seats, the Conservatives were reduced to just three seats and the Liberal Democrats failed to gain any seats.
