Sedgefield local elections

Elections to Sedgefield Borough Council were held every four years. The district was created as part of the 1972 local government reforms. The first elections to the new authority were held in 1973 in advance of the council taking office in 1974. The last district elections took place in 2007 before the district was abolished as part of changes to local government in 2009. The area today forms part of the unitary Durham County Council.
