The 2021 Leeds City Council election took place on Thursday 6 May 2021 to elect members of Leeds City Council in England. It was held on the same day as other local elections across England and the rest of the UK, including the inaugural West Yorkshire mayoral election.

The election was originally scheduled for 7 May 2020, alongside the later cancelled 2020 West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner election and other local elections across the UK, but was delayed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1]

As per the election cycle, both one third of the council's 99 seats and an additional casual vacancy in Roundhay ward were contested.[2] Following the postponement of the original election in 2020, the incumbent councillors' terms have been extended for an additional year to their initial two-year term granted in 2018. All councillors elected in 2021 will serve a one-off three-year term, instead of the usual four-year term, to retain their original term end date of 2024.

The Labour Party maintained their majority control of the council despite losing two seats. The closest contest saw Labour hold Temple Newsam ward by 12 votes ahead of the Conservatives.

Notes

  1. ^ Rothwell ward councillor, Carmel Hall, died in office in July 2020. In accordance with UK government regulations in response to COVID-19, no by-election was called as all local government by-elections were postponed to take place on the same date as the 2021 council election, when Hall's council term was due to expire.[4][5][6]
  2. ^ Ronald Grahame (Burmantofts and Richmond Hill, Labour) was charged with historic child sex offences in late 2020 and is currently "suspended from the Labour party pending the outcome of the case."[7][8]
  3. ^ In addition to the vacancy created following the death of Carmel Hall, both Eleanor Tunnicliffe and Angela Wenham resigned from their offices "over the weekend" of 20 and 21 March 2021. Tunnicliffe's term was due to expire in 2022, whereas Wenham resigned prior to the expiry of her term on 6 May 2021. In October 2019, Wenham had been de-selected by her Constituency Labour Party and therefore unable to recontest her seat as the Labour candidate. Two replacement councillors will be elected on 6 May.[2][9]
