Labour regained the representation Arbury and Stockingford division (including the birthplace of George Eliot) on Warwickshire county council at a byelection held on 16 July. The division had elected Tom Wilson for the Conservatives on 4 June, but Wilson was technically employed by the council at the time of his nomination and so he was disqualified from election. He fought for re-election having previously resigned, but at the byelection voters preferred Barry Longden (Labour) who had been county councillor for the division from 1993 to 2009.
A delayed election from 4 June also took place in the Kirk Hallam division of Derbyshire county council. The Conservative candidate for the division, Michael Sherwood, had died during the election campaign, but voters decided to re-elect Michelle Booth (Labour) who had represented the division since 2005. Michael Sherwood was a member of Erewash borough council for Abbotsford ward; voters there chose Kathryn Major (Conservative) to follow him.
All three other byelections held on 16 July were held by the Liberal Democrats. Ann Gopsill retained her late husband Graham’s seat on Wychavon district council in Droitwich Central ward by 10 votes. Dave Kent was elected from Moss Bank ward to St Helens borough council, keeping control of the council in the hands of the Liberal Democrats. Finally, a majority of one vote was enough (as Churchill said) in Portfield ward of Christchurch borough council where Christine Payne was elected with 279 votes to 278 for Conservative Lisle Smith.
