The 2016 Liverpool City Council election took place on 5 May 2016 to elect members of Liverpool City Council in England. This was on the same day as the election for the Elected Mayor of Liverpool and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside.

Due to the 'in thirds' system of election, one third of the council were up for election, with direct comparisons to previous results made with the corresponding vote at the 2012 Liverpool City Council election. There were two by-elections in Belle Vale and Norris Green wards, so these wards each elected two councillors.
