The latest updates on local electoral information are as follows.

Changes of allegiance

New vacancies

  • Cambridge: Queen Edith’s ward, after the resignation of Liberal Democrat councillor George Pippas, due to ill health. His term was due to end in 2021 so no byeleciton will be held.
  • Coventry: Wyken ward, after the death of Labour councillor Hazel Sweet. Term ends 2023.
  • Newham: East Ham Central ward, after the resignation of Labour councillor Julianne Marriott. Term ends 2022.
  • North Tyneside: Chirton ward, after the resignation of Labour councillor Margaret Reynolds. Term ends 2022.
  • St Helens: Windle ward, after the resignation of Independent councillor Gill Neal who was elected for the Labour Party but left the party in October 2019. Her term was extended to May next year so she will not be replaced in a byelection.
  • Sandwell: Old Warley ward, after the resignation of Labour councillor and former council leader Steve Trow. Term ends 2022.
  • Solihull: Elmdon ward, after the resignation of Liberal Democrat councillor Peter Davies. Term ends 2023.
  • Warwickshire: Feldon division, after the death of Conservative county councillor Bob Stevens. His term would have ended next May so no byelection will be held.

  • In England, all current vacancies which do not fill a term ending in 2021 will be held on 6 May 2021, the ordinary day for local elections. In Wales, all byelections will be held in a period between 1 February and 16 April 2021.
