  • Labour - 23
  • UKIP - 0
  • Liberal Democrats - 1
  • Ashfield Independents - 5
  • Mansfield Independent Forum - 4
  • Independent - 1
  • Other - 1

The total number of County Council seats has reduced from 67 to 66, following a boundary review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. The review has meant that most of the 56 divisions have changed in name, size or both.
