The 2018 Derby City Council election took place on 3 May 2018 to elect members of Derby City Council in England.[3] This was on the same day as other local elections. The Labour group on the council suffered losses of both the Council Leader Ranjit Banwait and the mayor John Whitby, as well as then cabinet member Sara Bolton, who lost by over 1,000 votes to Conservative Rob Cooper.[4] Labour lost its overall majority on the council, and a Conservative minority administration was formed with Liberal Democrat and UKIP backing.[5]
