The City Council has 57 councillors who represent 24 wards. Twenty of these councillors, representing nine wards, are elected within the boundaries of North-West Cambridgeshire. Of these 20 councillors, none are Liberal Democrats (they are all Conservatives!).
The overall composition of the council is:
- Conservatives: 38
- Independents: 10
- Labour: 5
- Liberal Democrats: 3

From these figures, it is apparent we have a long way to go in Peterborough!
