Burnley Council Election 2022 RESULTS: Greens gain but no real change to council make-up
A nail-biting recount saw the Green Party take a close seat in Cliviger with Worsthorne but that was the only real change on a day where Burnley Council remained very much “as you were.
Labour suffered a morale shattering four-seat loss 12 months ago, but there were no losses this time around as they defended seven seats.
This leaves the party with 18 councillors – five shy of a controlling majority – and discussions are due to take place next week to see if their leadership pact with the Liberal Democrats will remain in place.
The Greens were the only party on the day to make any gains, Coun. Jack Launer unseating the Conservative’s Ivor Emo in Cliviger with Worsthorne by just 11 votes.
Labour now holds 18 seats on the council followed by eight Conservatives, eight Lib Dems, six Greens, and five Burnley and Padiham Independent Party members.
