Welsh Labour

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 previous Cardiff all-council election took place in May 2017 and future elections will take place every five years.

Background

Council elections in Wales were originally scheduled for May 2021, but were delayed to avoid a conflict with the 2021 Senedd election. The frequency of the elections was also increased from 4 years to five years to avoid future clashes,[2] meaning (after 2022) the next council election is expected in 2027.

The number of councillors is to be increased from 75 to 79 at the 2022 election, with a number of ward changes to ensure better electoral parity.[3]

The Labour group have been in control of the council since 2012.

The Welsh Cladiators, a residents group campaigning against fire defective buildings, hoped to stand in the Butetown ward.[4]

A by-election was held in the Heath ward in November 2021—historically a ward split evenly between the main parties and seen as a possible indicator of the vote at the all-council election—which was won by the Labour Party with 47% of the vote. The Plaid joint candidate coming fourth with 7%.[5]

Common Ground Alliance

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 this election, the two parties fielded a common slate of candidates, known as the Common Ground Alliance.[6] Of the 70 Common Ground Alliance candidates, 46 were from Plaid Cymru with the remaining 24 from the Green Party.[7]

In October 2021 Cardiff Council accepted a number of ward change proposals made by the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales, with only slight modification. These were to take effect from the 2022 council election.[8] The changes gave a better parity of representation. Twenty-one wards remained unchanged.[3] Of the other wards:[8][9]
