On 7 January 2015, it was reported that Darren Billard (West Marsh), the Cabinet Member for Finance and Governance, had thrown away his Labour Party card in disgust at his deselection. He was deselected in October 2014 to make way for another Labour candidate. He will continue to serve as a councillor for West Marsh ward, but said it will be as an Independent (retires 2015).
On 25 March 2015, it was reported that Jon-Paul Howarth (Lab) (East Marsh) had resigned. He had been signed off from council duties for the past few months due to a medical condition and his membership of the Labour Party had lapsed, meaning he had technically become an Independent (retires 2016)

Lincolnshire. I will note (again) that unusual nominations patterns were a thing in some places. And as is always the way with Lincolnshire, explanation is needed for the Deepings: the poll in Market Deeping was postponed (I will edit the map when the vacancy is filled), three candidates (all from different parties) stood for three seats in Deeping St James: I've coloured it red as Phil Dilks generally tops the poll in contested elections there. There's also a two seat ward in West Lindsey that had one Independent and one Tory and no one else. I've coloured it blue.
