PDN understands that the Conservatives – who after last week’s local council elections are now the largest party in the Vale of Glamorgan Council – may have now come to an agreement with the Independents in Sully to form a majority administration.
There are 47 seats on the Vale of Glamorgan Council
Of those 47 seats, 23 are now held by Conservative councillors – making them the largest group on the council – but just short of an overall majority. The discredited Labour Party managed to hang on to only 14 seats in the Vale.
A deal with the two Independent Vale Councillors from Sully would create a group of 25 councillors – giving the new grouping an absolute majority – in many ways similar to the deal done between Labour and the Llantwit First Independents, which had kept the Labour Party in power in the Vale for the last 5 years.
The Annual Meeting of the new Vale of Glamorgan Council takes place on May 24th at 18:05 . It is at this meeting that the key appointments of the new council will be announced and the new Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan will be elected .
