A THIRD of the council will be up for election in both North Herts and Stevenage.

There are 15 seats up for election at North Herts District Council (NHDC), when voters go to the polls on May 3.

There are five apiece in Letchworth GC and Hitchin, two in Baldock, and one each in Knebworth, Chesfield and Hitchwood Offa and Hoo.

The Tory run council currently has 34 Conservative councillors, eight Liberal Democrats, and seven Labour.

David Scholes, NHDC’s chief executive, said: “Voting in the local elections will enable residents to help decide the way key local services are delivered over the next five years, giving them a voice on issues that directly affect their communities.”

At Stevenage Borough Council, there are 13 seats up for election.

Representatives from the Labour, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats, Green Party, UKIP and Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts parties are standing across those wards.

The Labour controlled council is currently made up of 27 Labour councillors, nine Conservatives and three Liberal Democrats.
