History[edit] The Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and Bedworth
Bedworth
district was created on 1 April 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972. It was from the merger of the municipal borough of Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and the urban district of Bedworth
Bedworth
(which included Bulkington). The new district was originally named just "Nuneaton"; however, objections from Bedworth
Bedworth
residents led to it being renamed " Nuneaton
Nuneaton
& Bedworth" in 1980.[2] Nuneaton
Nuneaton
had gained the status of a municipal borough in 1907,[3] and Bedworth
Bedworth
had gained the status of an urban district in 1928.[4] In 1938, Bulkington
Bulkington
became part of the Bedworth
Bedworth
Urban District. Borough status was conferred upon the new district of Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and Bedworth
Bedworth
on 15 November 1976. In 2008, after 34 years of Labour Party control, the ruling Labour council lost to the Conservative Party, who gained the four seats needed to gain control; the BNP also gained two seats on the new council (their first ever seats in the borough), but lost one seat to the Labour Party in a by-election held in December 2009. The Labour Party won two seats from the Conservative Party in the 2010 local elections, leaving the council under no overall control, but led by the Labour group (as the largest party).[5] The 2012 local election saw Labour regain majority control of the council. Labour maintained majority control after the 2014 local election. Subdivisions[edit] Nuneaton
