The 2010 Camden Council election took place on 6 May 2010 to elect members of Camden London Borough Council in London, England. The whole council was up for election and the Labour party gained overall control of the council from no overall control.[1]

Election result

The results saw Labour gain a majority on the council ousting the Liberal Democrat and Conservative alliance that had controlled the council.[2] Labour won 30 seats, while the Liberal Democrats were reduced to 13 seats, and the Conservatives were reduced to 10 seats.[3] The Green Party also lost seats, being reduced to 1 seat in Highgate, after losing the other 2 seats in the ward to Labour.[3]

Labour gained seats from the Liberal Democrats in Camden Town with Primrose Hill, Cantelowes, Kentish Town and Kilburn, while the Conservatives lost seats in Bloomsbury and Gospel Oak to Labour. However, the Conservatives did make gains in Belsize.[2][3][4] Following the election Andrew Marshall resigned as leader of the Conservative group and was succeeded by Martin Davies.[2]

The election in Haverstock was delayed after the death of Liberal Democrat councillor Syed Hoque during the campaign.[5] The delayed election in Haverstock was held on 25 May 2010 and saw the Liberal Democrats hold all 3 seats in the ward.[5] This brought the composition of the council to 30 Labour, 13 Liberal Democrats, 10 Conservatives and 1 Green Party.[5]
