The 2022 Cardiff Council election took place on 5 May 2022[1] to elect 79 members to Cardiff Council. On the same day, elections were held to the other 21 local authorities and to community councils in Wales as part of the 2022 Welsh local elections.

The 2022 election had been postponed from 2021, and was contested under new ward boundaries, which also increased the number of seats from 75 to 79.[2] The next election will take place in 2027, following an increase in the council term from four years to five years.

At the election, Labour maintained its overall control of the council, increasing its number of seats from 40 at the last election to 55. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats lost ten seats and one seat respectively, to a total of 11 and 10, while Common Ground, an electoral pact between Plaid Cymru and Wales Green Party, won two seats. Propel won one seat.

Council elections in Wales were originally scheduled for May 2021, but were delayed to avoid a conflict with the 2021 Senedd election.[3]

The length of council term was also increased from four years to five years to avoid future clashes, meaning that, after 2022, the next council election is expected in 2027.[3]

Ward changes

The number of councillors increased from 75 to 79 at the 2022 election, with a number of ward changes.[4]

In October 2021, Cardiff Council accepted a number of ward change proposals for the next election made by the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales, with only slight modification.[2] The changes gave a better parity of representation. Twenty-one wards remained unchanged.[4] Of the other wards:[2][5]

Council term and campaign

See also: Cardiff Council elections § 2017–2022

The Labour group have been in control of Cardiff Council since 2012.

In 2019, three by-elections (Ely, February 2019; Cyncoed, July 2019; and Whitchurch & Tongwynlais, October 2019) were called following the deaths of the sitting councillors.[6][7][8] Plaid Cymru gained the Ely seat from Labour,[6] while the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives held their seats in the other by-elections.[9][10]

In March 2018, Cllr Neil McEvoy was expelled from Plaid Cymru after allegedly disruptive behaviour at the party's 2017 spring conference.[11] Following the controversy, in October 2019, the three remaining Plaid Cymru councillors resigned their whips, and formed an independent group with McEvoy.[12] McEvoy and Cllrs Keith Parry and Lisa Ford would later join McEvoy's new party Propel, while Cllr Andrea Gibson, who won the Ely by-election, was elected for Common Ground in Pentyrch and St Fagans at the 2022 election.

In November 2019, the Conservatives gained a seat in Llanishen following a by-election triggered by the resignation of the sitting Labour councillor.[13][14] In November 2021, Labour won a by-election in Heath following the resignation of an independent councillor.[15]

The Welsh Cladiators, a residents group campaigning against fire defective buildings, hoped to stand in the Butetown ward, but ultimately did not.[16]

2 / 79

In September 2021, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party announced an electoral pact which would see them fielding a joint slate of candidates in Cardiff. Neither party had sitting councillors: Plaid Cymru's councillors elected in 2017 had been either expelled or had quit the party.[1] In the election, the two parties fielded a common slate of candidates, known as the Common Ground Alliance.[17] Of the 70 Common Ground Alliance candidates, 46 were from Plaid Cymru with the remaining 24 from the Green Party.[18] The alliance's campaign was formally launched on 24 April 2022.[19]

In the election, Common Ground won 17% of votes across the city, coming third behind Labour and the Conservatives.[20] They won two seats, both in the Pentyrch and St Fagans ward,[21][22] while the Liberal Democrats returned 10 councillors on a smaller share of the vote.[20]

The Alliance's elected councillors are Andrea Gibson and Rhys Owain Livesey.[22]
