Sheffield City Council elections took place on May 22, 2014, alongside nationwide local elections and European elections.

There were 29 seats up for election, one third of the council with a double vacancy in Walkley.

With a Labour majority of 36 and defending 19 seats, it was almost mathematically impossible for Labour to lose control of the council, as they would have needed to lose all 19 of those 19 seats to lose control. Even then, Labour would still have been the largest party.

Defections

Since 2010, when these seats were last contested, two Liberal Democrats had defected to Labour: Ben Curran in Walkley and Clive Skelton in Beauchief & Greenhill. The result in Stocksbridge & Upper Don was notable in that two former Liberal Democrat councillors stood for other parties. Martin Brelsford (defeated in 2011) stood as an Independent, whilst Jack Clarkson (defeated in 2012) stood for UKIP.
