All 84 council division seats
43 seats needed for a majority
The Norfolk County Council election took place on 7 June 2001, coinciding with local elections for county councils in England and the 2001 general election.
The Conservatives returned to office with a majority of 12 seats, with Labour losing 8 seats and the Lib Dems losing 3, and went on to rule for three consecutive terms until narrowly losing power in 2013.
Other parties and independent candidates stood without winning seats and making little impact.
