  • A ^ Walker was previously a councillor for Scartho from 1995 to 1999, before losing his seat to the Conservatives. He left Labour in February 2019, joining the Liberal Democrats and was re-elected for that party in May 2019.
  • B ^ Barber was first elected as a Liberal Democrat councillor, but defected to Labour shortly before he was due to stand for re-election in 2012.
  • C ^ James was first elected as a Liberal Democrat councillor, but defected to Labour shortly after Labour defeated a Lib Dem councillor in the same ward at the 2011 local elections.
  • D ^ Lindley was previously a Labour councillor for West Marsh from 2010 to 2014.
  • E ^ Shepherd was first elected as UKIP, but defected to the Conservatives shortly before he was due to stand for re-election in 2016.
  • F ^ Mickleburgh was previously a councillor for West Marsh from 2014 to 2018, before changing wards.
  • G ^ Wilson was previously a councillor for Heneage from 2010 to 2014, before losing his seat to UKIP.
  • H ^ Cairns was first elected as UKIP in 2014, but defected to the Conservatives several months before he was due to stand for re-election in 2018.
  • I ^ Bramley was first elected as Labour in 2010, but defected to UKIP in 2013 and defended her seat for them in 2014. She lost her seat to Labour in 2018, coming third, but regained it in 2019.
  • J ^ Hyldon-King was previously a councillor for Freshney from 1995 to 2003, before losing her seat to the Conservatives, and then again from 2004 to 2008, before losing again but to the Liberal Democrats.
  • K ^ Darby was previously a councillor for Yarborough (as a Liberal Democrat at first, but later defected to Labour) from 2010 to 2014, before deciding to contest East Marsh in 2014 unsuccessfully.
  • L ^ Wheatley was previously a councillor in East Marsh from 1999 to 2003, before losing her seat to the Liberal Democrats.
  • M ^ Harness was first elected as UKIP councillor, but quit the party in 2015, later joining the Conservatives in 2016 and thus seeking re-election for them in 2018.

  • P ^ Pettigrew was first elected as a UKIP councillor for Freshney in 2014, but defected to the Conservatives in early 2017. He sought re-election to the authority in Waltham, a much safer Conservative seat, as he likely assumed Labour might have defeated him if he sought re-election in Freshney as they had won it in every election since he won at that point. Ironically, however, the Conservatives did win there with a new candidate.
  • Q ^ Hudson was previously a UKIP councillor for Scartho from 2014 to 2018, at which point he stood down before rejoining the Conservative Party, having previously been a candidate for them in 2008.

List of Local Nature Reserves in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire is an English ceremonial county consisting of the North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire unitary authorities and the non-metropolitan Lincolnshire County Council, made up of six districts (Boston, East Lindsey, North Kesteven, South Holland, South Kesteven and West Lindsey) and the City of Lincoln. The non-metropolitan county is in the East Midlands, while the two unitary authorities are part of the Yorkshire and Humber region. Bound to the south by Rutland, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire, to the south-east by Norfolk and to the west by Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire's eastern edge follows the coastline with the North Sea and the southern bank of the River Humber to the north. The county's area is the fourth largest in England, but its population, at 714,800, is only the 14th highest.

Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) are designated by local authorities under the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. The local authority must have a legal control over the site, by owning or leasing it or having an agreement with the owner. LNRs are sites which have a special local interest either biologically or geologically, and local authorities have a duty to care for them. They can apply local bye-laws to manage and protect LNRs. As of January 2018, Lincolnshire has 32 designated Local Nature Reserves.
