The 2022 Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council election to elect members of Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council in England took place on 5 May 2022. One third of the 63 seats were contested, with one additional seat also contested in Gorse Hill as a by-election owing to a councillor retiring mid-term.[1] Each successful candidate will serve a one-year term of office rather than the normal four-year term due to a boundary review to be implemented in 2023.[2]

After the election, the composition of the council was:
