The 2024 Preston City Council election will take place on 2 May 2024 to elect members of Preston City Council in Lancashire, England.[1] This will be on the same day as other local elections across England, and Lancashire's Police and Crime Commissioner election.

As is typical for Preston's council elections, sixteen seats of the forty-eight total will be contested.[2] Labour have had majority control of the council for most of the council's existence, including from 2011 following a period of no overall control. The majority of contested seats will be fought only by Labour, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats; however, in five wards, independent runners or the parities Reform UK and the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition have also stood. Unlike last year, the Green Party did not stand in any seats.
